Alzheimer's disease is affecting more and more families, and the impact can be staggering. Most of us need help along the way. And, at holiday time, people caring for an elderly loved one need extra support. This holiday season, think about giving a little help in the form of a book called a "must read for caregivers." This book is Moving Mama: Taking Care of Mother During her Final Years with Alzheimer's. Moving Mama has received rave reviews, and has been called one of the best, most practical resources to come along in a good while. Frank, captivating, sometimes hard-hitting, witty, often wry or downright funny, and always helpful, the stories are compelling. The book includes stories about how the family dealt with finances, wills, finding caregivers, personal care, handling memory loss, moving, Sundowner's and more. And helpful resources are included as well. Moving Mama can be a wonderful aid to people who know who are dealing with the stress of caregiving.
