"Alzheimer's Disease can beset any family. My father was a victim of Alzheimer's and I know that seeing a loved one change from an intelligent, vital, and productive family member to a confused, dependent, and childlike adult is devastating. It is a change that afflicts the entire family, but no one more than the immediate caregiver. "In this book, Nellie Kidd-Madison recounts vividly the daily struggle of living with an Alzheimer's patient. In a simple down-to earth and often humorous manner, Nellie shares what she has learned about the disease over the course of the past thirteen years, and how she has learned to cope with each new behavior pattern. It is a testimony of her courage, innovation, and above all, her love for John. "If you have picked this book to read, it is likely that you, too, have a loved one with Alzheimer's. I have no doubt that you will be able to identify with Nellie and John and am confident that you will find useful information within these pages." Mark Hatfield Former U. S. Senator

Since my book Matters of the Mind...and the Heart, the trend toward care of the person with Alzheimer's has shifted from mainly finding a cure to a focus on improving quality of life for both the person with the disease and the caregiver. I became a caregiver this past decade. It is quite different being a family caregiver from teaching other families how to manage relationships throughout the caregiving journey. Some of those lessons were featured in Matters of the Mind. This book continues telling of many more lessons I learned. It is a personal account. The hope is that those reading it will be encouraged that they are giving, or have given, the best possible care they could. Caregiving is wrought with varying, strong and often surprising emotions. We must forgive ourselves for being human.
