From Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist and leading Alzheimer’s advocate Meryl Comer comes a profoundly intimate and unflinching account of her husband’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease, one of today’s most pressing – and least-understood – health epidemics. 100% of proceeds supports Alzheimer’s research.
This Is Not The Way We Want To End Our Lives.” –Meryl Comer
There is currently very little education and/or curriculum offered about Alzheimer’s, caretaking for Alzheimer’s patients, or impact on family members and friends. In the United States, more than 5 million people have Alzheimer’s, and there are 3x as many caregivers.
In 2013, 15.5 million caregivers provided an estimated 17.7 billion hours of unpaid care. In New York State alone, 23% of caretakers are under the age of 18.
