Overview

Understand that Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia and there are several types of dementia. You can make a significant difference in your loved one’s life if you learn to recognize the signs of the beginning stages of dementia and act quickly. The quicker you act once you recognize the symptoms, the faster you can slow down the degenerative process and keep them mentally functional for a longer period of time. The more mentally functional you can keep them, the longer you can keep them in their home and out of a personal care facility. The information in this book is what allowed my family to keep our mother in her home, still living alone, for over six years past the onset of Alzheimer’s.

—May the good Lord give his blessing on all your efforts—

—You may not remember me, but I will always remember you—

This is Terry F. Townsend’s account of his family’s six-year battle to keep his Alzheimer’s-stricken mother in her home as long as possible. Through Townsend and his sister’s concentrated efforts they were able to extend their mother’s standard of living for several more precious years.
