For our July Pick of the Month, the Dementia Australia librarians have chosen ‘Neither Married nor Single’ by geriatric psychiatrist Dr. David Kirkpatrick.

When Dr. Kirkpatrick's wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2007, their lives – and their marriage – would change forever. In an honest, uplifting and sometimes heartbreaking account of loving a partner with dementia, Dr. Kirkpatrick creates a clear guide for others in similar circumstances.

He shares his perspective both as a loving and grief-stricken husband coping with a profound change in his marriage and as a geriatric psychiatrist doing everything he can for his wife while continually learning throughout that experience.
