About the Book

Winner of the 2004 Florida Writers Association's First Place Award for adult nonfiction.

ALZHEIMER'S STORIES is a creative nonfiction book written by Karen Favo Walsh. It examines the irony and humor of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) while it offers practical advice for hygiene, safety, denial and grief.

My journey as a caregiver began when my mother-in-law was diagnosed with AD. I switched from the fast lane of business to the surreal meandering path of Alzheimer's.

When AD reached my family, I inhaled medical resources, "poor-me" stories and books by authors as befuddled as their patients. None of these books provided the personal, front-line details I wanted.

ALZHEIMER'S STORIES is intimate information. Its short, relevant chapters provide fast advice to time-starved caregivers. It is the information I wished for when I became an AD caregiver.

Why you should read ALZHEIMER'S STORIES:

~> You suspect someone you love suffers from AD.

~> Your person hides shoes, repeats stories or wanders; other curious behaviors have surfaced.

~> You feel isolated as the caregiver.

~> You want honest, personal information about what to expect.

~> You want to compare your experience to others.

~> You are a caregiver, friend to a caregiver, spouse, sibling, child, friend or neighbor of an
Alzheimer's patient.

I hope these stories help you find the magic moments hidden inside this disease.

-Karen Favo Walsh
