The Other Side of Alzheimer’s

My book, “THE OTHER SIDE OF ALZHEIMER’S, What Happens to You When Your Spouse Has Alzheimer’s”, was published in March, 2012.  A collection of experiences we had during the 10 years my husband had Alzheimer’s, it was written to connect with people who need to know that their feelings about this life-changing disease are the same as those of many others.  View the video on Youtube by the book’s title.  Please review the Table of Contents for topics of interest.
