Product Description

If you'd told Donna M. Hayes that one day she would drug and kidnap her mother, she wouldn't have dignified you with a response. And yet, when faced with an insidious enemy-Alzheimer's-which had set up camp in her mother's mind, Donna and her brother did just that.

As her mother's caregiver and advocate, Donna was forced to battle through numerous conflicts on various fronts-including fighting for her own mental and emotional health, her marriage, and her faith in God.

In Reflections, Donna offers a candid account of what life is like for the caregiver of someone suffering from Alzheimer's disease. She recounts her struggles with guilt, her desperate cries for help, God's silence, and her loneliness and growing despair. But though hers is a story of loss, it is not a tale of woe. As Donna continues to fight for her mother, while fighting against her mother's disease, the seed of hope takes root in her heart.

Written for caregivers by one who has survived the trenches, Reflections points you to the hope that will guide you through your darkest days.
