This book began as my personal journal but grew into a comprehensive resource for Alzheimer’s caregivers as well as a compilation of information from researchers, psychologists, Aging experts and families coping with this devastating illness all over the world. As you walk into the mist of Alzheimer’s disease this book will serve as a roadmap and the life lessons of others who have traveled this road before you.
