Book Description

A complete failure. This is how you can expect to feel as you watch your loved one sliding below their incoming tide of confusion.
Alzheimer's is probably worse to watch than it is to suffer. If it were a physical affliction, like a broken leg or a heart attack, it would be easier to accept and understand. But it is a sneaky silent thief that intangibly dissolves the mind.

Alzheimer's Timeline is an accurate chronicle of 11 years steady decline, from the first noticeable symptoms of confusion, through to total mental and physical immobility.

-An honest and candid narrative of how Alzheimer's can affect the sufferer and the family.
-Written in the simple language of a layman.
-Accurately identifying each stage of regression by date.
-Offering you wisdom of hindsight, so that you can avoid making the same mistakes as the author.

Prepare yourself and your family practically and emotionally.

Understand the potential frustrations of the family and caregivers. Realise the importance of planning ahead. Avoid the many, many mistakes of the author that are described in embarrassing detail.
From the hard earned hindsight of the author, learn to make the prudent preparations that will guarantee the most appropriate care for your loved one throughout each regressive stage of Alzheimer's disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Brilliant. 3 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A typical student, I came to Amazon in the hope that by buying loads of books I would somehow pass my MH nursing exam by osmosis. Simply by having them would prove my dedicaion to my study. Actually reading them however........

But, I did read this one, from beginning to end in one sitting. I couldn't put it down.

It is easy to miss out the human cost of being a family member of someone with Alzheimer's, or indeed any dementia. In college we gaze appreciativly at MRI scans and 'ohh' an 'ahh' at powerpoint presentations on a daily basis, before being let out into the community/hospitals in shiny uniforms, with even shinier faces, to absorb the wisdom of professionals in the field. They're good, but they're not the whole story.

I would encourage everyone, no matter their knowledge base, be it curiosity or professional interest to read this book. It is brave, witty (yes, it made me laugh out loud in places), and it made me cry (a great deal). I have recommended this book to everyone on my course and I would, without and shaddow of a doubt recommend it to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alzheimer's Timeline 27 Dec. 2011
By alexi
Format:Kindle Edition
A real life "must read"
I only decided to read this as i have read other life stories by the same author and found them interesting. In this book there is no happy ending. Its not about cures, treatments or medication for Alzheimer sufferers its one family struggle to come to terms with a family member struck down with the disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivated from beginning to end 18 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
An emotive, tender and poignant account of the cruel effects of dementia. I was truly engrossed from the beginning. A personal story of an illness which leaves sufferers confused and perturbed and their families devastated. Sad, happy, and truly heartbreaking I thoroughly recommend this book.
