This book of true stories allows a glimpse into the lives of families who support and love the 5.2 million Americans with Alzheimer's disease. The Alzheimer's journey requires tenacity and dedication on the part of caregivers, who learn to glean epiphanies and moments of joy from everyday life. Colleen Sell has chosen wonderful stories from over 2000 submissions. Thank you, Cup of Comfort, for releasing this book to create awareness of how Alzheimer's and related dementias affect the entire family!
