Through the Wilderness of Alzheimer's: A Guide in Two Voices
Nearly four million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, a debilitating neurological disorder affecting the memory that places great stress on the sufferer as well as the caregivers. Robert and Anne Simpson share the story of Bob's early onset of Alzheimer's in order to give families accurate, firsthand information about the disease and to give support and practical help to both patients and caregivers. Their dramatic story, told from both of their perspectives, uses journal entries, conversations, letters and prayers, to trace the onset, diagnosis, and treatment of the disease. All who are trying to find a way through the wilderness of Alzheimer's will find understanding, compassion, practical advice, and spiritual hope in this story.
