More than 5 million Americans currently suffer from Alzheimer's disease; by 2050, 13.4 million is predicted! At least one caregiver will be needed for each victim of this progressive disease with no cure. Alzheimer's Stage-by-Stage Care Guides, written by the experiences of caregivers and their loved one(s), features: disease symptoms, recommended caregiver(s) role, coping suggestions, resources, and lessons learned from five case study participants at early-stage, mid-stage, late-stage, severe and end-stage.
What makes this book unique is that need-to-know information is presented in an easy-to-use format as it is needed, by stage of disease. Unlike the majority of Alzheimer's books written by medical professionals, this book is written by one who has lived the caregiver experience for three of her family members. You will hear these case study stories, and those of two other caregivers and their loved one(s), as they use the author's voice to reach you in hopes of helping you avoid the landmines they stepped on in their journey with Alzheimer's.
