Since my book Matters of the Mind…and the Heart, the trend toward care of the person with Alzheimer’s has shifted from mainly finding a cure to a focus on improving quality of life for both the person with the disease and the caregiver. I became a caregiver this past decade. It is quite different being a family caregiver from teaching other families how to manage relationships throughout the caregiving journey. Some of those lessons were featured in Matters of the Mind. This book continues telling of many more lessons I learned. It is a personal account. The hope is that those reading it will be encouraged that they are giving, or have given, the best possible care they could. Caregiving is wrought with varying, strong and often surprising emotions. We must forgive ourselves for being human.
