Product description

Product Description

Our Mom suffered from Alzheimer's disease. The journey she and my family took down this arduous road may be beneficial to other families facing a similar challenge. The adjustments required at home to keep someone safe and happy, as well as the transition to skilled nursing care, are very stressful for the individual and entire family. However, the real impetus for writing Mom's story came at the end-stage of the disease, when the nursing home initially refused the doctor's order for palliative care. Our Mom presented uniquely, in some ways, compared with other residents on the dementia ward. When we were told the decision for "comfort care" was akin to committing assisted suicide, we were shocked to the core. If our Mom's wishes had not been well-documented, especially the living will and health care proxy, we might have had a more difficult time advocating for her. My hope is to spread awareness of the importance of communicating our health care wishes to our loved ones and ensuring the proper legal documents are in place.
