The contents of this book reflect the author's experiences, thoughts, and emotions while functioning as a caregiver to a husband with Alzheimer’s. The poems give voice to the feelings so many... More > have as caregivers, but suppress because of guilt or perceived societal constraints. There are notes to doctors, family, friends, and neighbors which may serve for some readers as models for communicating with those same people in their own lives. There is an essay on the care of the patient in the early stages of Alzheimer's and a glossary of some medical terms used. Before becoming a caregiver herself, the author worked for 23 years in the field of assessment and case management for the frail elderly with a focus on keeping them in the community as long as possible. Proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit SAGE Eldercare's Spend-A-Day Adult Day Health Center in Summit, NJ.< Less
