Alzheimer's Disease hits very close to home for my family and I. My grandpa was diagnosed at the age of 68 with Alzheimer's Disease and died ten years later, very similar to all of his sisters. More recently my mom was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease at the age of 58. She was forced to give up a lifetime of nursing and now spends as much time as she can traveling and spending time with her seven grandkids. This book was very good therapy for me but I still haven't figured out if I wrote it from my mom to myself or from myself to my kids. Order Book
