As a child seeing your parents age is hard. As a partner seeing the person you feel in love with is heart wrenching. Alzheimer’s and other dementias are difficult for those experiencing it and for those around them. Kuddos to Chicken Soup For The Soul for addressing this and providing coping and compassionate stores shared by others going through the same situation. I’m further impressed that all the royalties from this book are going to the Alzheimer’s Association!
Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia affect millions of people each year. Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia is difficult but you will feel less alone when you read these stories by caregivers, and also by patients in the early stages of Alzheimer’s who explain what they are going through. The collection of 101 stories, a joint project with the Alzheimer’s Association, is filled with love, lessons and inspiration from others like you. This book will be a source of support and encouragement throughout your caregiving journey.
