Share Article

Author Kellie Lynn chronicles a caregiver’s life to show effects of Alzheimer’s disease in new book.

Readers will feel empathy from Lynn’s words and share in the love and compassion of her personal story.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, every 68 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease. However, many people consider Alzheimer’s disease exclusively a disease that affects the elderly.

Author Kellie Lynn urges people to understand that this disease is not age exclusive. She hopes to reach many others out there that have undergone the same trials in her new book “Our Long Goodbye.”

“This disease is not just the disease of parents and grandparents,” said Lynn. “It is also the disease of spouses, siblings and children.”

Lynn dedicated her life to caring for her husband, who had Alzheimer’s disease. Because of her experiences as a caregiver, she has learned the harsh realities that Alzheimer’s has on family and friends.

Alzheimer’s does not have one size fits all symptoms or solutions. Each patient will react differently, often they have different symptoms and caregivers must be prepared to react accordingly. Because of her experiences in caregiving, Lynn has learned the importance of caring for the individual as opposed to caring for the disease.

Alzheimer’s disease not only robs the individuals of their cognitive faculties, but also causes their families to watch helplessly as their loved ones’ memories fade and personalities become altered.

Readers will feel empathy from Lynn’s words and share in the love and compassion of her personal story.
