One Word chronicles my first year’s journey into my husband’s world of Alzheimer’s where the shackles of fear, despair and self-pity melted into acceptance, peace and joy.

Abstract:
Caregivers for Alzheimer’s loved ones are legion, yet society is largely unaware of them. The world is consumed with more worthwhile tragedies. These caregivers are lonely and often deserted by families and friends. They have no one to talk with, no one who understands, and no one to help carry their burden. I know. I was one of them. I did not have a shoulder to cry on or arms to enfold me. No words of comfort and encouragement were heard. There was only anguish, pain and the daily struggle to cope. Eventually, there was hope and peace.

Reviewer: Sally Moore
I am the author of 'One Word, an Alzheimer's Caregiver's Journal.' Thirteen years after my husband's death, I found the courage to read and then share my journals with caregivers. At the urging of my fellow Alzheimer's caregivers, I decided to publish my first year's journal. If sharing my journey as an Alzheimer's caregiver helps just one caregiver, it is well worth the sharing of my struggles and pain. For those of you, who recognize your own story in mine, please take care of yourself. Your life is often lonely and filled with sadness, stress and uncertainty. Your days are long and respite only a wistful dream.

I could not hold back the tears as I walked in the world of this remarkable woman and her journey. This book is a gift from the heart and should be read by not only caregivers but also by anyone who has loved and lost. The coping skills in the afterword will certainly help everyone to enjoy each and every moment of their lives. I am anxiously awaiting her next book - the next part of their journey.

Reviewer: Nancy
Thank you, Sally. I saw myself and Bob in your book. "Thoughts unfinished for lack of words" and try not to dwell on "what part of him will die tonight." Sally sets the right tone because she's been there and faced "well-meaning" advice to "detach yourself and not take it personally." Good read and comforting - healing words of faith and love. Thank you for sharing your life. We need all the understanding your book gives!
