Overview

A complete failure. This is how you can expect to feel as you watch your loved one sliding below their incoming tide of confusion.

Alzheimer's is probably worse to watch than it is to suffer. If it were a physical affliction, like a broken leg or a heart attack, it would be easier to accept and understand. But it is a sneaky silent thief that intangibly dissolves the mind.

Alzheimer's Timeline is an accurate chronicle of 11 years steady decline, from the first noticeable symptoms of confusion, through to total mental and physical immobility.

-An honest and candid narrative of how Alzheimer's can affect the sufferer and the family.
-Written in the simple language of a layman.
-Accurately identifying each stage of regression by date.
-Offering you wisdom of hindsight, so that you can avoid making the same mistakes as the author.

Prepare yourself and your family practically and emotionally.

Understand the potential frustrations of the family and caregivers. Realise the importance of planning ahead. Avoid the many, many mistakes of the author that are described in embarrassing detail.

From the hard earned hindsight of the author, learn to make the prudent preparations that will guarantee the most appropriate care for your loved one throughout each regressive stage of Alzheimer's disease.

    Don't complain, love them them the best you can.

    My mom is in her 7th year of Alzheimer's and i was hoping to read something that would give me an idea of what was to come and i found this not helpful at all. I feel for what the writer went through but he writes as if we should feel sorry for him and that is not what this is about. I plan on keeping my mom with me until the end here in my home. I hire caregivers to sit with her while i am at work. Home is better than any nursing home or skilled nursing facility and what are 10 years when you are caring for a parent that spent 18 years caring for you.

    Laughing and Crying at the same time

    This is a very emotional journey for the author which is described in very honest and candid words.
    The book is written in such a way that you can follow the clinical stages, and do so by date.
    Alzheimer's is such a frustrating disease to cope with in the family - this book is refreshing, and I found it very helpful.
