Overview

Into the Mist, When Someone You Love Has Alzheimerâs Disease answers the questions that come along with an Alzheimerâs diagnosis. As Alzheimerâs reaches epidemic proportion more and more families are searching for answers that will best equip them to meet their needs and those of the Alzheimerâs patient.
What are the symptoms of the early stages of Alzheimerâs disease?
When should someone stop driving?
Why is my loved one becoming withdrawn and insecure?
Are hallucinations an occurrence with Alzheimerâs disease?
Does Medicare or Medicaid cover expenses?
How do I cope with the stress of constant care giving?
Is Alzheimerâs disease fatal?
These are may other topics are addressed by leading Aging experts, researchers and a Neuropsychologist.
Along with factual information the reader will be told the stories of three families caring for a loved one from the earliest stages to the last stages. Their personal accounts will put a human face on the challenges of Alzheimerâs care giving. Jack, Frank and Shirleyâs stories are told by their daughters and they illustrate the commonalities and the differences among Alzheimerâs patients and the way their families handle their most difficult challenges.
This book began as my personal journal but grew into a comprehensive resource for Alzheimerâs caregivers as well as a compilation of information from researchers, psychologists, Aging experts and families coping with this devastating illness all over the world. As you walk into the mist of Alzheimerâs disease this book will serve as a roadmap and the life lessons of others who have traveled this road before you.

The diagnosis of Alzheimers is devastating to say the least. 'Into the Mist: Someone you Love has Alzheimer's Disease' is a very helpful, wonderful book that allows you to understand that you are not alone and the way the disease progresses. Deborah brings the darkness in questions into the light. A must read for anyone dealing with this horrible disease.
