Alzheimer’s is a serious topic. Really. It is not easy if one is afflicted by it. I know how hard it can be especially if your special someone will not be able to recognize you in the long run because of Alzheimer’s.
I have ready many books regarding this topic but only a few have touched me in a way that also brings a little laughter to inspire and give hope to people who have it.
Robert Leleux has managed to write a book that is funny and inspiring. And yes, deeply true. The book, titled The Living End is a story of hope chronicling Leleux and his family’s experiences surrounding the diagnosis and care taking of his beloved grandmother, JoAnn, who believed that the only thing to fear is the thing you cannot make funny.
Resentment is a very hard and painful experience that can haunt you for the rest of your life. Yet, there is a chapter in the book that reminds readers that we are not defined by our memories but that our commitments to dwelling on the past and holding on to resentments can keep us from becoming the person we want to be.

Maybe you Have an Alzheimer’s Story to Share? This book inspires and gives hope keeping people in check reminding them that just because one has Alzheimer’s does not mean it is the world of the world. But the start of hopeful beginnings.
