Be Still and Know I'm God: Psalm 46:10: A Caregiver's Journey Through Parents' Alzheimer's and Dementia
Approximately 5.8 million people in the US currently have Alzheimer's disease. Another case is diagnosed every sixty-five seconds.*
If you consider those numbers to be staggering, consider these:
• The population of Los Angeles is less than four million.
• More than sixteen million family members and friends provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia.**
• The number of Alzheimer cases in the US is projected to grow to triple in the next thirty years.*
This book may contain one caregiver's story, but it is also the story of the millions mentioned above. Teresa Trotter shares her emotional journey, along with practical advice and tips learned along the way. Readers will be strengthened and uplifted because the heartfelt focus of the message to all these caregivers is you are not alone.
