The Reluctant Caregivers: Learning to Care for a Loved One with Alzheimer's

By Anne Hendershott | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I owe a special debt of gratitude to Marge Galante, RN, director of the Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Day Care Center in San Diego, California. Marge provided encouragement and support throughout our family caregiving journey. Her kindness to Katharine and her willingness to “share the caring” with us will always be treasured.

I am also grateful to Monsignor Dan Dillabough, who reminded us often of the special grace that God gives to caregivers. His prayers and support sustained us throughout our caregiving years.

This book evolved from the generosity of many. Anne Hawkin and Jan Fain provided insightful suggestions and helpful criticisms at the early stage of this project. At Bergin and Garvey, I was fortunate to work with Lynn Taylor, who recognized the need for this book, and with Heidi Straight, whose superb editing ability greatly enhanced the writing.

A very special thank you to my husband Dana, and our God-given children, Heidi and Jonathan. I am especially grateful to Jonathan for his willingness to share his experiences to help others understand the sacrifices that caregiving children must make.

And, finally, to Katharine, who taught us that even reluctant caregivers can learn to care. We cherish the final gift of her presence in our lives.
