In "Alzheimer's: Medical science and families are still asking WHY?" Author Jim Greenwood has documented his experiences in caring for his beloved wife, Maxine, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at the age of 74 in 1990. This is the true story of a beautiful, gracious lady and how her husband coped with her disease. It is also a tender tale of the love, faith, and devotion between two people whose dreams of sharing their twilight years together in peace and comfort were suddenly shattered by a twist of fate. This dramatic nonfiction work includes humorous anecdotes of happier times as well as a look at the ongoing search for answers to that elusive question of WHY? Fast-paced and easy to read, this book can be a helpful guide for anyone facing similar challenges in his or her own life. It also describes what to consider in choosing the right care home for a loved one with advanced dementia. Greenwood was at Maxine's side when her long struggle with Alzheimer's ended early in the morning of August 27, 2003. "And in the not-too-distant future in the Columberium niche next to hers," concludes the author in his epilogue, "I will be reunited with my precious forevermore, just as it was meant to be."
