The Man in The Mirror and Other Strangers
The Man in the Mirror and Other Strangers is a personal memoir of a wife’s journey into caregiving as she looks after her beloved husband, the love of her life, who gets diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. It’s a heartbreaking love story of complications and a guide for the tired, stressed out, and overwhelmed caregivers of Alzheimer’s and beyond who can no longer take care of themselves – or have forgotten how to.
Whether you are a new caregiver or old, supporting a victim of Alzheimer’s or any other disease, this book will hopefully give you the strength and courage to deal with your complicated feelings, raw emotions, and hard days.
