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.

Dominick Domasky Pens Memoir, My Name Is Sharon, About His Mother

💜 💜 💜

Introducing our newest AlzAuthor!


In My Name is Sharon, Dominick Domasky's touching memoir of his mother he writes:

How was I supposed to know that the world would stop, and a global pandemic would settle in? I started writing this book cathartically, never expecting it to be read by others. I was chronicling our family’s struggle and documenting the pain. Then I had an epiphany, Sharon Domasky is more than a victim of disease. I realized as a storyteller it was my duty to try and share her light with the world.

Last Thursday I had the honor of presenting a Custom Caregiver Collection to the Alzheimer's Association support group at Soprema Senior Center in Wadsworth, Ohio. Thank you to all who believe so deeply in this project.


For years we've wanted to find a way to get physical books into the hands of those who need them: caregivers and others concerned with dementia. With our tiny team of volunteers this seemed like a long shot. But our dream is coming true! We are now offering

real books

to real people

in real places

through Custom Caregiver Collections
