Did you ever think when you were young that one day you would be called by God to see over the care of your parents, in-laws, or other members of your family? In 2013, facts and figures from the Alzheimer's Association state that 5 million Americans are affected by the disease of Alzheimer's today. It is also estimated that caring for a person with Alzheimer/dementia will cost $203 billion in 2013, and by 2050 it will rise to 1.2 trillion dollars. For the last seven years I have gone on a journey of love to understand the disease of Alzheimer's. Throughout the book you will find pieces of our family story through our struggle with this disease so that the reader will have a better picture of what it takes to care for someone with Alzheimer's. Surviving Alzheimer's is a book for those with aging parents. We are the ones who will become caregivers, care mangers, and family caregivers to their parents, in-laws, and other family members sixty-five and older. Not only will the book appeal to families and caregivers, it will also help medical professionals in our community to understand Alzheimer's. The book will lay the foundation for what you need to know about Alzheimer's because one day it will be us standing in the midst of this disease.
