There are millions of people living with Alzheimer's and similar types of dementias.  They suffer varying degrees of  altered brain function that affect memory, thinking, language, judgment, and behavior

It can be very difficult to watch a person we love slowly slipping away - especially when it is a parent or a spouse -  the people who once took care of us.  It is very important for caregivers to have support and respite as they take on this role.

If you are one of these caregivers, this special edition of Chicken Soup for the Soul was compiled for you.  Whether you are just starting down the road, or well into your journey, these one hundred and one stories were chosen to provide support, wisdom, and comfort to you.  As an added benefit, all of the royalties from sales will go to the Alzheimer's Association.

The book opens with an introduction by Angela Timashenka Ginger who is the Chief Strategy Officer of this charity which provides care and support for patients and families.  They also conduct research.
