As a professional writer and more importantly, a former caregiver to an elderly parent who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, I count it a priviledge to write copy that discusses the day-to-day challenges associated with the onslaught of memory loss.
Fighting a relentless foe, caregivers find themselves in the deep trenches, right alongside their loved ones. My goal is to assist the caregiver on their journey, to encourage them to keep trudging through the mire of uncertainty. I will be your harbinger of better days to come, so that you'll know it's posible to make it through the dark hours, and that even a difficult journey through Alzhehimer's disease can be punctuated with optimsim.
May you find joy on your journey.
