Item Description...
This is a book taken from a two-year journal of the daily experiences that I encountered while caring for my eighty-five-year-old mother with Alzheimeras disease. It soon became my main aspiration to ensure that my mother kept the dignity that my family and I knew she deserved. Most of the book contains stories from the later stages of Alzheimeras. We had many good days with laughter and many colorful, yet challenging, days helping me to understand actions, behaviors, and the effect that Alzheimeras has on a person. This book contains many lessons that I have gained while caring for my mother.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
From the author's two year journal kept while caring for her 85 year old mother in the last stages of Alzheimer's  Jan 17, 2009
Local Arizona author Linda Marie Hoffman decided to write this helpful book "Why Do You Call Me Mom?" from her two year journal kept while caring for her 85 year old mother in the last stages of Alzheimer's.

Care for Alzheimer patients is exhausting and emotional according to Hoffman. Amidst all the frustration, there is still humor. On this lighter side caring for her mom was funny at times. Her mom would wash her own hair at least 4 times a day. She would hide things all over the house and everyone would search for them. She would go through her purse continuously counting her money. These activities would calm mom and bring relief to other household members.

At first, the family was in denial, but soon realized how challenged they were by this disease. Members of the family tried to help, but it became too much for them as mom's confusion and fright evolved. How does one understand the needs of the loved one who forgets everything and the family does not? Hoffman, her husband, and other family members soon got past this emotional period and care of mom was easier.

Hoffman presents the reality, if you decide to take care of a family member with this disease, be prepared for the unexpected. While mom walked the floor and gradually lost awareness sleep was lost by all because they could not keep up with her spurts of energy. The patient paces at length and you are on a 24 hour watch for their safety. One of the most aggravating adjustments to be made is that the patient continually asks the same questions over and over again making you feel helpless and angry. Present memory fades and the past becomes more dominate in mom's world.

When Linda decided to care for her mother she was unaware of the sacrifices to be made. This disease puts extreme stress on every one. Hoffman is encouraged by new research and medication available for Alzheimer's disease. She feels more money should be spent to teach caregivers.

"They need to learn so much if they are to be successful."
