The Caregiver

A Life With Alzheimer's

Large Print - 2000
Rate this:
When Aaron Alterra's wife, Stella, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, she was an active, vibrant, eighty-year-old preparing for a cello performance. Becoming Stella's primary caregiver, Alterra engaged in a crash course of self-education to prepare for that changing role and decided to write a self-help book for others. An accomplished fiction writer, Alterra found himself writing a memoir instead -- the story of his continuing journey with Stella and the life they now lead. What he has produced is captivating for the general reader, and helpful to anyone facing the prospect of sharing Alterra's fate.
