Broken Brain

Caretakers Guide to Alzheimer's and Other Dementias

by Susan L. Harrington

"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." 

Beth Erickson

"Alzheimer's and dementia is a catastrophic disease of the brain. The progression of the disease entails confusion and the inability to remember how to perform the simplest elementary cognitive behavior. The patient who is effected by Alzheimer's disease or dementia becomes caught in its web. Picture how a spider weaves its web. The purpose of the web is to capture its prey. The prey is the patient’s cognitive and emotional memory of the brain. In the beginning the patient will actively struggle to manifest a level of stability. The progression of the disease draws the web tighter with in the brain until the emotional and mental capacity has withered. The emotional and mental capacity becomes enmeshed with the disease...becomes the web. Broken Brain: Caretakers Guide To Alzheimer's and other dementia written by Sue Harrington, is designed to enhance the caretaker and patient perseverance of understanding the medical component and emotional behavior of the disease."

by Sue Harrington

This book can give relatives, Churches, and anybody who deals with seniors practical things to do to improve the quality of life of seniors in this stage of their life.


We love to shower the person we love with presents, but when men and women are elderly—and especially if they are now living in Assisted Living or other facilities, they usually don’t need more clothes or trinkets. So, what do you give them that will actually increase their quality of life?


As we age, our eyesight lessons. It’s harder to get around. You provide them with gifts which can actually improve their quality of their life instead of collecting dust. You do things for them. Lastly, by spending time with them, you can lessen their feelings of loneliness and isolation; you validate that they still have worth. Some seniors never have a visitor once they move into Assisted Living or other another type of facility.


Remember, every day is a gift and your senior won’t always be here; treasure the time you have together.
