The Long Road Home: Helen's Journey with Alzheimer's
by Brenda Springhetti

The Long Road Home is a daughter’s personal account of the struggles she and her family experienced as they help their mother and grandmother cope with the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s. From the early onset when it is suspected “something was wrong” to the end of Helen’s journey, this story could be retold by countless families who have also walked with a loved one along this same uncertain road. As the story unfolds, changing relationships are revealed as well as heartbreaking losses, moments of laughter, and difficult decisions reached. Most significantly, this story triumphs Helen’s love of life and laughter as well as her steadfast dignity and peaceful acceptance in coping with the final stages of Alzheimer’s.
