Voices of Alzheimer's: Courage, Humour, Hope and Love in the Face of Dementia

by Betsy Peterson
£9.99   paperback  The Perseus Books Group (2004)

Voices of Alzheimer Betsy Peterson spent fourteen years caring for her husband as he suffered from Alzheimer-related dementia. This experience put her in touch with many others who faced the same struggle - of having the disease or caring for someone with it. From the poignant stories, heartfelt comments, and priceless encouragement that Peterson heard from patients, their families, friends, and caregivers, she assembles a vibrant, powerful chorus of voices.
 
Capturing the many dimensions of the Alzheimer's experience - the challenge, the struggle, and even the humour and the rewards - Voices presents a varied and realistic look at what it's like to be affected by the disease. With compassion, wit, and grace, it offers you the simple wisdom and understanding derived from those who have travelled the same uncertain path.
