Book Spotlight: Never Giving Up and Never Wanting To



NEVER GIVING UP AND NEVER WANTING TO BLOG TOUR INFORMATION

About the Author:

As a lifetime problem-solver, I faced the challenges of caring for my two AD
victims by researching the disease and developing caregiving skills to assure their
comfort and care.

About the Book:

Like most, I knew about Alzheimer’s disease. It causes old people to forget. When
my relationship with this disease began, it highlighted how little I knew. Following
my widowed mother’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis, I researched this disease to gain
insight about my new role as her caregiver and decision maker. What I learned
and experienced during her affliction still left me somewhat unprepared for what
was yet to come. Sixteen months following my mother’s diagnosis, my dear wife
and best friend was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s. Though now I was
familiar with this silent killer, my wife’s diagnosis set into motion many changes
and challenges in our lives. Someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s every sixty-
eight seconds. Currently, Alzheimer’s is the only disease in the top-ten causes
of death that is on the increase and has no means of prevention and no possible
cure. Given these facts, support for those afflicted relies on increasing levels of
caregiving as the disease progresses. Let me explain something about this “old
folk’s disease.” Alzheimer’s affects more than just parents and grandparents. It
is also the disease of siblings, spouses, and children. Alzheimer’s forces many
families to decide between home versus institutional care. An estimated fifteen
million caregivers provide some level of care to the Alzheimer’s victims still
living at home. No matter what level of care you are providing, the importance of
preparation is paramount. Arming yourself with knowledge begins that preparation
process. I was unprepared for the roller-coaster ride my life became as the sole
caregiver for two Alzheimer’s victims. To meet their varied challenges, I adapted
and developed multiple techniques for targeted personalized care. If only I knew
then what I know now. By sharing my knowledge and experience, I hope to better
prepare you for your caregiving journey.
