"They Forgot; Yet We Remembered" is a book of reminisences from a group of ten caregivers who have dealt with dementia in the life of a loved one. Called The Forget-Me-Nots, they share the challenges of taking care of loved ones who have suffered from the gradual oblivion of Alzheimer's disease.
These people, telling their personal stories, are motivated by a deep desire to help others who are facing the many dilemmas that accompany this heartbreaking disease. They hope their stories will guide others to make honest and constructive choices for the sake of their loved ones and themselves.
They conclude with a practical and important check list of issues to consider when seeking help for a loved one with dementia. Some of the issues are easily overlooked in the initial, sometimes frantic, search for assistance by a caregiver if not addressed.
