9780028642024: Courage to Care: A Caregiver's Guide Through Each Stage of Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's disease is often referred to as a family disease because of the constant emotional strain it places on family members as they watch their loved ones slowly slip away. But for those left with caring for their loved ones, the emotional, physical, and financial toll can be enormous-so much so that most caregivers fail to take care of themselves and become depressed, ill and unable to continue their role as caregiver. Courage to Care: A Caregiver's Companion Through the Stages of Alzheimer's helps to ease the burden of those who have accepted this labor of love by providing them with knowledge and coping strategies to make it through each stage of this progressive and complicated disease. The book focuses not only on how to deal with the emotional issues associated with the disease, but provides specific advice on how to make life easier and more enjoyable for both the loved one and the caregiver.

About the Author:

A successful author and screenwriter, Joanne Parrent majored in American Culture at the University of Michigan and received her degree in Communications from UCLA. She began her career in the film industry, writing, producing, and directing documentary films. Among her credits in the documentary field is The Healing Force, a feature-length documentary released in theaters, about Norman Cousins' remarkable recovery from a life-threatening illness. Parrent has written dramatic screenplays for Walt Disney Productions and Bette Midler's All Girl Productions, mini-series for PBS, and series television, including the CBS hit Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Parrent is the author of four nonfiction books and has edited several other published books. Among her books are Life After Johnnie Cochran (HarperCollins, 1995), Once More with Feeling (Dove Books, 1997), and You'll Never Make Love in This Town Again (Dove Books, 1996). The latter was on The New York Times and Los Angeles Times bestseller lists for over four months. In the late 1970s, Parrent was an editor of Chrysalis, a women's art and literary magazine. At that time she also served on the board of The Woman's Building, a space for women artists and writers.
