The Alzheimer’s Spouse
Finding the Grace to Keep the Promise
Mary K. Doyle
Alzheimer’s spouses are faced with perhaps the most difficult promise human beings are asked to keep: the marriage vow to love their husband or wife-despite the physical and emotional ravages of the disease–until death do us part. In this timely and specific book, journalist and author Mary K. Doyle, whose husband suffered from Alzheimer’s most of their 24 year marriage, gives gentle advice to other Alzheimer’s spouses about what is in store for them and how to deal with their beloved soulmate in loving and practical ways while still protecting their won health and happiness.
