BOOK OF THE MONTH
Dear Clueless: A daughter's journey through Alzheimer's Caregiving.
by Sandra Savell
This is a book for you, the courageous Alzheimer’s caregiver. You will need it. You will need to read everything you can get your hands on and find time for. You will need to find what works for you and the person you are caring for. But most of all you will need to learn to turn off the blather and realize that YOU are the best person for this job and that YOU know what is best for you, your family, the life you lead, and especially for the person you are caring for.
Be prepared. Everyone will have an opinion. Please remember that opinions are like noses. Everyone has them. In the end, your decisions are the ones that matter and they will be the ones you live by day to day. Not to mention the decisions that you will live with when your caregiving days will finally come to an end.
You will find this book a very personal decade-long story of mine and my mother’s journey through Alzheimer’s.
This book may or may not address the situation you are currently traveling through. But I hope it will help and inspire you nonetheless.
