Description


Navigating the world of Alzheimer’s disease can be a very daunting task.  While going through this journey with my father, I learned firsthand the overwhelming feelings of stress, fear, and frustration that consume those who love someone living with Alzheimer's disease.  There were challenges, breakthroughs, reevaluation, and many ah-ha moments!  In I Got My Mind Back, Can I Go Home Now? I share all that I learned, how to avoid the mistakes I made, and how to get the assistance you need.  I wish I had this book two years ago!   

I Got My Mind Back, Can I Go Home Now? also shares conversations with doctors, nurses, drivers, care providers and family members, and especially the wonderful people I met who were bravely living with the disease.  

The Resource Manual shares forms, documents, resources and more. The Resource Manual beautifully compliments the book, I Got My Mind Back, Can I Go Home Now?
