"I wish Sue’s book was available when I was struggling with my Mother’s Alzheimer’s; it would have put made it “easier” for us to make sense of what was happening to my Mother. I did not know anything about dementia or Alzheimer's before my Mother was diagnosed. All the signs were there: not being able to describe what she went to the store for, getting lost, and questioning how to do things she did her whole life. I knew something was not right, but did not know what. If you notice change or think it's odd that Mom or Dad doesn't remember, please take them for a checkup and find out what you can do to help them. It is a terrible disease it robs you of your mind, and you are no longer the person you once were and will never be again. She is now my child and I am her protector... " Beth Erickson"


Alzheimer’s and dementia touches almost everybody’s life… It touched my life. My grandmother had dementia. My mother had reversible dementia. This started my journey of researching and attending every conference and class I could to help me personally deal with this. I saw how my mother and brothers struggled as they took care of MaMa, my grandmother. I saw how Annie’s family struggled with it. Beth struggled with it too as she shared her personal testimony. After over 800 pages of research, between 1 ½ - 2 years in the making, and attending many conferences and classes, the result is this book.


Soon after I started this book-writing journey, I contacted the American Geriatrics Society who gave me permission to list “Potentially Inappropriate Medication Use in Older Adults”. That was huge in my opinion to receive permission to publish their chart in this book. I was humbled by that experience.
