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.
