“Mom’s Losing Her Memory I’m Losing My Mind!: Taking Care of Mom and Dad with Memory Decline” (published by Balboa Press) is a published self help book by local author Kathy Jean Stewart, RN, BSN.
This impactful book leads readers down the difficult path of caring for loved ones with memory decline. With over 88.5 million Americans 65 years and older projected to have Alzheimer's disease by the year 2050 (according to the Alzheimer's and Senior Living facts and figures), memory decline is in epidemic proportions. This staggering statistic does not include the many more that are inflicted with other types of memory disorders.
Stewart discusses how families are blindsided with no preparation or guidance for this difficult path ahead. Her easy to read guide addresses the complex and difficult issues of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer's disease. This book contains real stories and tactics caregivers can use when providing care and comfort for their loved ones. "People need to know they are not alone, they need help, and help is available!," says Stewart.
"Caregivers are exhausted emotionally and physically,” Stewart states. “They are desperate for good information, and my book provides just that.” “Mom’s Losing Her Memory I’m Losing my Mind!” gives caregivers guidance managing the care and symptoms of dementia, from the initial stages of discovery, through the terminal stage. The author also shares strategies gleaned from over 30 years of experience as a registered nurse caring for elderly with memory decline.
