    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and am happy to provide a review.Sarah Smith s story of the battle her mother faced along with all of her loved ones after a devastating diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer s is an amazingly honest look at the effects this disease has on not only the person who has the disease, but the struggle family members face as they slowly lose a loved one, one tiny piece at a time.The book does not shy away from telling it exactly like it is, nor should it Alzheimer s does than remove memories it peels away a person, layer by layer, and it is devastating to watch Not only will a loved one begin forgetting the most basic things, personalities change A laid back, happy person can become extremely frustrated understandable , irrational, and demanding I know because I ve witnessed this I am not sure if it s because we have avenues for communication, or if Alzheimer...

    In 2009, Sarah Smith and her family drove from Dallas to Houston to visit her parents over Thanksgiving She offered to do some early Christmas present wrapping with her mother, and noticed that her mum was having trouble tying ribbons The older woman kept making a fist and rubbing her forearm She also reported she d had numbness and tingling in her hand for some time Sarah feared the worst a brain tumour, perhaps Unfortunately, her mother, then aged 64 and seemingly fit as a fiddle , was extremely stubborn and refused to see a doctor Soon, she was having troubles with numbers, often subtracting a final zero from a figure On one shopping trip with a friend, she racked up a 1500 bill for make up She had thought the total read 150 Fine motor skills also suffered She couldn t write her name She also became increasingly restless and irritable A diagnosis of Early Onset Alzheimer s Disease was made in 2012 The neurologist was certain that Sarah s mother, called Beauty by her grandchildren,...

    This one hit me close to home, as I lost my husband to a form of dementia, so I don t feel up to going into a lot of detail in my review tonight I will say this, Sarah shared the story of her family s journey with honesty and warmth The book is written in a style that is a pleasure to re...

    I won this book through a Goodreads Giveaway and am happy to provide a review.Unfortunately, I couldn t finish this novel I thought the book would be interesting, given the subject matter mother diagnosed with Early onset Alzheimer s and because just recently, I lost my great aunt partly due to dementia I ve known people who have had dementia and friends who have dealt with family members who had Alzheimer s, and figured this book might be an interesting read because of the recent events I ve experienced However, the I read, the I couldn t get past how many times God and God s plan is mentioned Don t get me wrong, I have nothing against religion, but I felt like I couldn t go a chapter without it being mentioned I felt like that was a really heavy focus on the book, and would have liked to see how Sarah s family dealt with what happened I got about 65% into the book be...

    I was a full time carer for my later mother, who suffered from the wicked disease Alzheimer s , so when i spotted this book on Netgalley, i felt that it was a book that i could relate to Just like Sarah s mother Beauty my mother also had the onset of Alzheimer s too early in life early 60 s There were so many parts of this book that i could relate to and could feel the pain and heartache that Sarah went through It brought back my own memories and just like Beauty it brought back the days my mother got herself lost when taking herself out The difference with Sarah and her family and my own, is that we do not believe in God and the only help we turned to, was a private carer who came to the house a few hours a week so i could go shopping etc It also helped that i was once a carer in a home for those with Alzheimer s and other forms of Dementia for several years The care home that Sarah had pl...

    I received this book from Goodreads for an honest review I must say I am conflicted, both professionally and personally The author is from an upper SES, and a devout Christian Yet, as such the book is less about Alzheimer s, her mother s deterioration and coping methodology and about appearances, the benefits of having financial resources, and God s Plan Many reviews presented here on Goodreads are resonances of reviewers personal experiences with Alzheimer s As such, I wanted to say to this author Perhaps God s Plan was for you and your family to Have a plan Extant symptomatology was so evident, yet the family placed her Beauty at risk by waiting for God to make a plan Knowledge is power, and yet it s as if knowledge was gained experientially rather than consultation with experts and associations, by research The diagnosis was hidden from the author by the parents Then she didn t broach her father with her knowledge of Beauty s wanderings, the need for placement EVEN at placement s...

    I received a free copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway, and was not disappointed While the subject matter of Alzheimer s is not always pretty or easy, the author did not shy away from the brutal truths or the beautiful hope of the situation.
