How did it begin for you? In our family, we went through theories to explain it all away. This game went on for at least a year or two before one day, it clicked. Mom had Alzheimer’s.
This book is meant to be a guide to help you and those you love navigate the overwhelming diagnosis of dementia, especially Alzheimer’s Dementia, and the months and years that follow. It includes what we wish we had known, what we learned, and the resources that helped us along the way.
