Facing Alzheimer's: Family Caregivers Speak
Patricia Brown Coughlan


When the body and the mind of someone we love begin to fail, the burden that falls on the caregiver can be overwhelming. This deeply practical and warmhearted book features the frank stories of eight women who lived through the decline of their husbands and the agonizing decisions they had to make, including: how to acknowledge the illness; coping with crises, including violence; nurturing one's own sanity and health; and preparing for the end -- and beginning again.

The book has been re-printed, with a completely updated resource list, as of October 2000.
