Help for Families in Crisis
It starts out as small moments of forgetfulness that can be chalked up to simply getting older. But as time passes and symptoms accumulate, you are forced to face the fact that your loved one has Alzheimer’s disease. Now you’re wondering how the course of the disease will run and how you will provide for their care. How do you help your loved one when you feel overwhelmed by the diagnosis yourself?
Drawing from his years of experience as a physician, Robert Smith takes you through the various stages of Alzheimer’s disease and the difficulties that each presents. Pointing you to Christ for strength and encouragement, he offers many practical suggestions to help you care for your loved one, both physically and spiritually.
