Alzheimer's Daughter

The Story

Alzheimer’s Daughter introduces the reader to my healthy parents, Ed and Ibby, years before their diagnosis, then recounts painful details as our roles reversed and I became my parents’ parent.

Their disease started as translucent, confused thoughts and ended in a locked memory care unit after a near decade of descent into the opaque world of Alzheimer's.

I began writing Alzheimer’s Daughter one week after my mother's death––when I was stunned, realizing Dad had no memory of her or their 66-year marriage.

I write to pay tribute to the undying spirit at Ed and Ibby's core, and with the hope that the story of their parallel decline might be helpful to others.

New Children's Book, The Story of Mrs. Inez, by Madeline Wolfe

If a child in your life needs a gentle explanation of Alzheimer's, please check out Madeline Wolfe's delightful children's book The Story of Mrs. Inez.

Madeline shares:

The character of Mrs. Inez is loosely based on my grandmother’s former roommate, who I met at a nursing home around five years ago. This book is a tribute to her, my own late grandmother, and anyone else who can no longer tell their story.
