Do you know someone dealing with Memory Loss?

  • When Someone You Love No Longer Remembers
  • Cecil Murphey © 2011
  • Illustrated by Michal Sparks ©2011
  • Harvest House Publishers

  • 64 pp. Hdbk, Pocket size Gift Book

Cecil Murphey has filled this gift book with twenty-four personal stories from caregivers helping a family member with Alzheimers.  In compassionate ways each one-or-two page story explains symptoms of this gradually debilitating disease.  The stories inform readers of what to expect and how to survive as long-term caregivers. The author chose stories that reveal positive lessons from caregiving as well as how to deal with difficult areas of the disease.

A few issues dealt with are: accepting that no cure exists, God’s possible purposes in allowing this terrible disease, ways to calm an agitated sufferer, and how to help friends relate. Also, Murphey writes of caregiver’s needs. Caring for a family member with Alzheimers can be seen as serving God Himself.

This book is an easy-to-read, informative, beautifully designed and comforting gift for anyone who knows or is responsible for someone with Alzheimers.

Frameable prints of the artwork are available.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
