BOOK OF THE WEEK:
Short emails between 2 women whose husbands have Alzheimer’s make for an easy-reading book on a serious subject. Sprinkled with humor, they share their pain, joys, frustrations, heart-breaking decisions, possible solutions and trade-offs. Their frank and honest details on sensitive topics provide a special source of support for spouses dealing with these same struggles. The open hearts of the authors can ease the guilt felt by many a caregiver, as they describe the times they felt they disappointed their husbands, then consider how to improve the future. The sharing of vulnerabilities in these pages is a very special gift to caregivers who have the same concerns.
