This is the first book (2 in 1) for me. The book has a section in the back explaining the disease in a simple way to the great grandchild. It can work for any small child with questions about a person with Alzheimer's.
This book is about a modern day subject, a growing disease called Alzheimer's. There are 4.5 million people with this disease now and it is growing rapidly.
A lot of people have had to learn about this sad disease the hard way as did I. There is a need for more people to learn as much as they can. You will either have a family member get this disease or will know someone with it.
It is not a disease to be afraid of but it will help you and them if you know how to respond to certain responses, statements or subjects of their choosing.
There comes a time when you need to get help from an assisted living. It may even be necessary to put them in a nursing home. This book takes you through both facilities and when Peggy thought it was time for each.
Each case is different, but each has a lot of similarities. Support groups are a lot of help. This book tells about my case and what I learned. There is so much more to learn and situations which I did not have to face. Your case will be different.
I only hope this book helps you in some way. I have added some helpful hints at the end of some chapters. I learned a lot of my hints from people in my support group who care for loved ones with this disease.
May God bless each caregiver. You are a VIP in their life.
