Forgotten Faces: Family Caregiver Voices
Forgotten Faces: Family Caregiver Voices takes readers directly into the homelives of actual caregivers to cognitively impaired family members.
This captivating nonfiction narrative rotates through the entire caregiving journeys of “Fred,” “Janice,” “Alice,” and “Yvonne,” whose wife, second husband, mother, and grandfather were diagnosed with Alzheimer's dementia.
Dr. Tiller's personal and professional commentary compliments their earnest firsthand accounts to provide solace for prior caregivers, empowerment for new or future caregivers, and startling insights for their families, friends, neighbors, employers, or policymakers.
A portion of Forgotten Faces: Family Caregiver Voices proceeds will be directed to assist caregiver support groups.
