Released to the Angels: Discovering the Hidden Gifts of Alzheimer's by Marilynn Garzione

A Caregiver's Journey

Alzheimer's is devastating. It can erase memory, change lives, and destroy dreams. When Marilynn Garzione accepts the role of primary caregiver for her husband, Patrick, she faces a world that is slowly being taken away. While living with the numerous challenges of this disease, she discovers that humor can still exist in sadness and acceptance in the face of loss.

Marilynn shares her personal thoughts and insights as she and Patrick continue to cope with this progressive disease. She reveals memories of their early relationship and the reality of how even ordinary trips to the grocery store can become an adventure. By realizing the value of living in the now, she discovers that music can continue to touch a soul and that loss of memory cannot erase the meaning of love.

Released to the Angels is a celebration of life that will give hope and strength to anyone facing a personal hardship and give comfort to those who may be affected by Alzheimer's disease. It offers a clear message that no matter how fragile, life holds joys to be discovered and strengths to be learned.
