LONGMONT, Colo. (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people age 65 and older diagnosed with Alzheimer’s will more than double between 2010 and 2050 to 88.5 million, or 20 percent of the population and likewise, those 85 and older will rise three-fold, to 19 million. It is this debilitating disease that Bob Miller has been affected by personally, and to help prepare other caregivers in need shares his and his mother’s experience in his new book, “My Mom Inez: Our Alzheimer’s Journey” (published by iUniverse), the story of a son’s determination to protect and care for his mother as he struggles with the signs of her losing her mind to Alzheimer’s disease.
“This book grew out of my effort to understand, accept and effectively deal with what was going on in my mother’s life, and how it affected all of the people who loved her,” Miller explains.
Miller’s story is sure to resonate with those who are now, or will in the future, provide healthcare for their aging parents. It will encourage them to think about what will happen to them in their final years – all the while making them laugh, cry and think in the process.
“My Mom Inez” tells the story of one man’s devotion to his mother, and his determination to love and care for her the way she always protected and cared for those she loved.
