Poignant Memoir On Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease

Beside The Mountain: Finding Strength and Courage Through My Father's Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease

Description: Beside The Mountain: Finding Strength and Courage Through My Father's Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease by Stefania Silvestri is a poignant new memoir detailing Silvestri's struggle as a caretaker from the age of 14. Her father was first diagnosed with the disease at age 48 and quickly declined, eventually not being able to do much of anything for himself. One reviewer/caretaker has said: "As a child of a parent who is suffering from Alzheimer's, Stefania has thrown a life preserver to all of us who are drowning in the trials of this disease. We know we are not alone, and that there is hope to surviving."
