Alzheimer’s is a deadly disease that progressively reduces a healthy human-being to a person who becomes absolutely dependent on others for each and every daily-chore before becoming bed-ridden and in the bargain, being reduced to a skeleton. Now if that is a perceived to be a difficult journey, well it is the understatement because the care-givers goes through a journey that is even more arduous and difficult. Seeing your loved one going gown the long dark tunnel, that has no end and no chance of any ray of light or hope, can really be devastating for even the toughest individual.
The author having gone through such a journey for almost 12 years, has penned down his experiences, suggesting various ways and means by which the care-giver can give a ‘dignified life’ to the affected person while maintaining and retaining own sensibilities.
