Summary
This groundbreaking multicultural anthology shares moving personal stories about the impacts of Alzheimer's and dementia. An estimated 5.7 million Americans are afflicted by Alzheimer's disease, including 10 percent of those over sixty-five, and it is the sixth leading cause of death. But its effects are more pervasive: for the nearly 6 million sufferers, there are more than 16 million family caregivers and many more family members. Alzheimer's wreaks havoc not only on brain cells; it is a disease of the spirit and heart for those who suffer from it but also for their families. This groundbreaking anthology presents forty narratives, both nonfiction and fiction, that together capture the impact and complexity of Alzheimer's and other dementias on patients as well as their caregivers and family. Deeply personal, recounting the wrenching course of a disease that kills a loved one twice--first they forget who they are, and then the body succumbs--these stories also show how witnessing the disease and caring for someone with it can be powerfully transformative, calling forth amazing strength and grace. -- Amazon
