Alzheimer’s Through My Mother’s Eyes by Suzette Brown

This book is for all of the caregivers out there who slowly found themselves in the position of taking care of a loved one who may no longer even recognize them due to the ravages of Alzheimer’s. Through Brown’s experience watching from the sidelines as her mother slowly declined, to the day-to-day struggles she faced and the lessons she learned about meeting the very special needs of someone who used to take care of her, the author provides insight and information for anyone who may face this frightening possibility.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association: * 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. * Every 67 seconds someone develops the disease. * Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. * In 2013, 15.5 million caregivers provided an estimated 17.7 billion hours of unpaid care valued at more than $220 billion.Far from simply being a disease that only influences the brain, Alzheimer’s essentially becomes a death sentence for those affected with the disease. There is no prevention and there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a devastating diagnosis for the patient, as well as for the patient’s loved ones.Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s are women. There are 2.5 times more women than men providing around the clock, intensive care for someone with Alzheimer’s. Suzette Brown’s book, Alzheimer’s: Through My Mother’s Eyes drives these statistics home for readers. Her personal account of how her life was turned upside down after her own mother’s diagnosis is a touching, poignant and heartbreaking account of the unending care, constant decision-making, emotional roller coaster that takes over the lives of Alzheimer’s caregivers.Without a doubt, Suzette’s frustration, anger and at times hopelessness comes across in her book as no informational or statistical website possibly could. Through her eyes we see how strong-willed and determined one woman can be when it comes to doing what’s best for the most important female role model in her life. Not all gloom and doom, Alzheimer’s: Through My Mother’s Eyes is at times sweetly touching and moving. One can’t help but put themselves in the author’s shoes. Read more ›
5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful book January 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book should be a must read for anyone going through the horrors of caring for an Alzheimer’s patient. Even if it is just to let them know that they are not alone in the struggle. My mom suffered with this and passed over 3 years ago. I could see so much of her in this book. I wish my dad, who was mom’s caregiver, could have read this book before he also passed away. He would have seen that the anger my mom directed at him was the disease and not the woman suffering from it. It is amazing that the patients all seem to have the denial and ability to hide just how bad their memory has become; the anger and hurt they inflict; and the worry about money. Suzette’s mother could have been mine when it came to money.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This well-written book shares the author’s journey from observing her beloved mother’s early symptoms through the agonizing loss of a familiar personality to final bereavement. There is much here of learning value in terms of legal needs, household organization, and–most importantly–the emotional toll on caregivers. It must be so taxing for any adult to switch roles with a parent and become the one responsible for difficult, intimate decisions. It is a courageous book with a significant message for all of us at the stage of life with aging parents.
