The title of this manual, Welcome Stranger, is purposeful. An Alzheimer’s patient becomes a stranger in that their behavior, likes, dislikes, and actions change from what we have previously known and lived with in prior years.

This guide is not intended to be a primer to understanding Alzheimer’s disease but rather to provide a few meaningful ways to make the job of care giving less onerous and life more pleasant for both parties.
