”Coach Broyles’ Playbook for Alzheimer’s Caregivers is a wonderful resource to recommend for caregivers of persons diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. It has greatly impacted the lives of caregivers by providing practical information in a clear, direct and approachable format. The included pocket reference is an especially useful tool for having relevant tips and strategies available at a glance, and in the moment they are needed.”

“I used your book everyday. It was my bible on taking care of my wife. I recommend it to everyone. Thank you.”

James Skinner

“A much needed book for those of us who have a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.”

Jeffery Jones

“I work as a caregiver for Home Instead Senior Care and we were given this book for the clients we work with. It is very informational and helpful, especially for the caregivers and families that don’t have a clue what they are in for. It’s a very sad disease to watch someone go through it. Thank you for writing this book Coach Broyles.”

Tammie Oskerson

When my mother was diagnosed, I thought she would just lose her memory and I could handle that. I eventually joined a support group and the first thing I was given was Coach Broyles’ book. I was so shocked when I learned the true story behind this disease, and as time goes on, I have seen many of the things the coach described. I found the book had prepared me for what was to come. I was very happy to receive the education. Thank you coach Broyles.

Leslie Tepper Kievens

This playbook was extremely interesting and informing to me. I thought I understood the ramifications of this disease, but by reading the information in the Alzheimer’s Caregivers Playbook, I was able to better understand what will happen to a patient especially in the final stages. Thank you for making this available to me Coach Broyles.

Beth Bottorff

I have had the honor of working with Alzheimer’s residents for the past four years. This is by far the best how-to manual I have ever come across. I recommend it to all with whom I work.

Susan Kasprak

This book is a must-have for all men who are taking care of their wives, mothers or other females with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. It speaks to men in ways they understand and can act on. It’s short, direct and to the point. it is couched in terms that need no translation.

Carol Larkin

This is a great resource. I am a professional caregiver and have given this book to several clients’ families. It is very down to earth, love it!

Betsy Arnold’s speech was life-affirming for me. I discovered a different approach to my dad’s care. Betsy’s words turned on a lightbulb in my way of thinking. We all have a beacon in the night to follow because [the Broyles family has] gone before us and are willing to share their knowledge with us!

My mom and I were blessed to meet and hear Betsy and Molly speak while they were here in Ponca City. they were very informative… the BEST! I had already read Coach Broyles book some time ago. I would recommend it to anyone. One can never be sure when this disease might become a part of your family. They were on Dr. Phil’s Show on that Friday and then we heard them speak on Saturday at the Senior Citizen Center. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting them both.

Patricia Haynes Schneider

Thank you to Coach Broyles and Betsy for your presentation tonight in Topeka, Kansas. You both were truly inspirational and provided great practical tips in taking care of our loved ones. Keep up the great work you both are doing!! To all who may have a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s, the Alzheimer’s playbook is a must read.

Gary L. Conwell

If you have a loved one who suffered from Alzheimer’s, go to their website.

Tammy Gardner

My mother is 74 with Alzheimer’s. Your guide is a treasure trove of valuable information and insight that care-givers can relate to. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Melody Smith

This book is incredible! I found it online shortly after my dad was diagnosed. I then ordered additional copies for family members who needed clarity and more understanding of the disease. In addition, I shared it with other families and donated copies to my dad’s nursing home to give out as needed.

Treasa Knox

We are sharing some of your tips on our Facebook page Circle of Care. Hopefully people will seek you out for more information. Your Playbook is so valuable.

Lee Ann Stedman

I used this book when I was doing my internships in Social Gerontology. The book is wonderful.

Cory Livingston

This is excellent. Everyone needs to know how to talk to an Alzheimer’s patient. Thank you for this book and website. All caregivers and medical people should have this.

Greta Wagner

I received this book a few years ago. We were told Mom had Alzheimer’s Disease back in ’96 and the info you sent has helped me so much. I believe everyone should have a copy and read/study it. Thank you for helping others understand what AD is all about and how to care for their loved ones.

I am only beginning this journey with my mother and I’m so thankful to get this book early in her care.

This book was a gift from a very special friend after my mom developed Alzheimer’s. Coach Broyles’ playbook helped me know what I’m up against.

I recommended this book today at lunch. It is one of the best everyday guides to helping someone with Alzheimer’s that I have seen.

I received this book a few years ago and it has been such an enormous help for me. Very informative, and simply laid out. My mom has Alzheimer’s and I took care of her in my home for two years before she moved on to hospice.

Thank you for clear, practical guidelines. It is helpful to review and my siblings and I use the book as a source of good ideas for our mom.
