Summary At first, Ken Abraham wrote off his mothers changes in behavior as quirks that just come with old age. There was memory loss, physical decline, hygiene issues, paranoia, and uncharacteristic attitudes. He soon realized that dementia had changed her life and his familys forever. How is it possible to lose a loved one while he or she is still living, still sitting right in front of you, talking with you, smiling at you and yet the person you have known and loved for years is somehow gone? According to the Alzheimers Association, an estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimers disease. Thats one in eight older Americans. More than likely, that figure includes someone you know and love. As he chronicles his own mothers degenerative condition, New York Times best-selling writer Ken Abraham educates while offering inspiration to help listeners cope with and manage their family circumstances. With humor and spiritual reminders of Gods command to honor our parents, Abraham encourages listeners through often-difficult responsibilities. And though, in most cases, patients will not recover this side of heaven, he suggests many practical things that families can do to make the experience safer, kinder, and more endurable for everyone involved. When Your Parent Becomes Your Child tells the story of one familys journey through dementia while offering hope to family members and friends, that they might better understand the effects of the disease. Dont let this catch you by surprise be informed before you face the challenges and difficulties of a loved one with Alzheimers or dementia. This audio book can help.
