French Fries, Ice Cream, & Cucumber Sandwiches: A Poetic Memoir of a Journey with Alzheimer's
When my husband, Al, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, the doctor said that for each Alzheimer’s patient there was a second patient: the caregiver. I struggled with the role of caregiver for almost three years. Expressing my feelings in poetry was my therapy; it kept me sane. I am sharing these poems in the hope that they might be of help to others who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s.
