by Cornelius Deasy
Over five million Americans currently suffer from Alzheimers, an ailment that puts a serious emotional burden on their family and friends. They will find themselves perplexed by the nature of this ailment, just as the author of this book was, facing the perpetual question What do I do now?
Starting from the baffling beginning, as his wife begins to show unusual behavior, he deals with the important questions one by one: What is Alzheimers? Where do you find help with the problems? Where do you find caregivers to relieve you? And in the end, what if you cant take care of the patient at home anymore? This book covers loving care from the beginning to the end through seven years of Alzheimers.About the Author
