About the Book

Alzheimer’s is a frightening, frustrating disease with a striking emotional and physical impact on all involved. However, knowledge and the right attitude can make the experience more bearable, as M. Joanne Roth (M.S. in Counseling from Portland State University), shows in Thanks for the Memories: My Journey with Alzheimer’s as a Caregiver to My Mother. With the wisdom of one who has been there, Mrs. Roth relates a wealth of information on the “multiplied effects” of memory loss and the caregiver’s role, as experienced through her own mother’s care. Her no-nonsense explanations offer encouragement and support as she reveals that such care can become positive experience when approached with patience, understanding, and faith in God. By realistically depicting what to expect and offering tips on handling difficult situations, Roth’s dual personal/practical approach makes this a valuable tool for those facing an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.
