Meet Sammie

As an author I am certainly not an expert or an authority on Alzheimer’s. I am definitely not a professional author and didn´t pretend to write an authoritative masterpiece. I never pretended to be any one of those things. I am simply an ordinary “John Doe” 24/7 caregiver, husband, sharing my experiences, inventing therapies while caring for my wife with Alzheimer’s. We have been married 44 years, 3 kids now grown up, a great dog most of those years, a typical family on our own trying to hold on to my wife and avoid her shutdown.

Caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer’s in the home without any outside help is extremely difficult but usually there is no other option. Outside professional help cannot respond “in real time” when radical behavioral changes occur. Only home caregivers can. No one has the exact key as to how to respond to these changes as there are no two profile behavioral changes alike in the same stage of the disease.

Consequently, there isn’t a standard therapy to apply as each person reacts differently in each stage. Even the stages of Alzheimer’s vary in their characteristics. Only experiences from others can be your guide. What works for me may not work for you. Caregivers, no two alike, are completely on their own.

I began to invent my own therapies. Family caregivers find themselves alone inventing their own therapies to mitigate behavioral changes and needs.

I realize there are other “home caregivers” like me trying to take care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s. Like everyone I was learning the hard way by trial and error to mitigate tremendous changes in behavior with my wife. It’s not easy as she was in the beginning of the advanced stages.

Hopefully, my books “62 Tips For Caregivers Of Alzheimer’s, To Delay Shutdown,” and “Preventing Her Shutdown, Losing My Wife To Alzheimer’s” become a shortcut to avoid some of the desperation, frustration and sadness on their tortuous caregiving journey.
