A son's experiences taking care of a mother with Alzheimer's Disease, supervising her care -- at an assisted living facility and a nursing home -- and being there at the end. The story is told in a manner that hopes to focus the reader's eye on the insidious nature of adult mental dysfunction, while at the same time offering useful insights and advice on the responsibilities of caregiving and the supervision of care.
Alzheimer's and its evil brain-robbing cousins are a scourge that rip our loved ones from us piece by piece. When the disease is firmly in control, there are no silver linings or wonderfully shared moments. At best, we can strive for an approach that will leave us free of missed opportunities and regret.
