Books Info:

Never Giving Up  free pdf Like most, I knew about Alzheimer's disease. It causes old people to forget. When my relationship with this disease began, it highlighted how little I knew. Following my widowed mother's Alzheimer's diagnosis, I researched this disease to gain insight about my new role as her caregiver and decision maker. What I learned and experienced during her affliction still left me somewhat unprepared for what was yet to come. Sixteen months following my mother's diagnosis, my dear wife and best friend was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's. Though now I was familiar with this silent killer, my wife's diagnosis set into motion many changes and challenges in our lives. Someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's every sixty-eight seconds. Currently, Alzheimer's is the only disease in the top-ten causes of death that is on the increase and has no means of prevention and no possible cure. Given these facts, support for those afflicted relies on increasing levels of caregiving as the disease progresses. Let me explain something about this "old folk's disease." Alzheimer's affects more than just parents and grandparents. It is also the disease of siblings, spouses, and children. Alzheimer's forces many families to decide between home versus institutional care. An estimated fifteen million caregivers provide some level of care to the Alzheimer's victims still living at home. No matter what level of care you are providing, the importance of preparation is paramount. Arming yourself with knowledge begins that preparation process. I was unprepared for the roller-coaster ride my life became as the sole caregiver for two Alzheimer's victims. To meet their varied challenges, I adapted and developed multiple techniques for targeted personalized care. If only I knew then what I know now. By sharing my knowledge and experience, I hope to better prepare you for your caregiving journey.
