Apologia for these journals:
They are not about taking care of a relative with moderate to severe Alzheimer's/senile dementia.
For an explanation of what these journals are about, click the link above.
For internet sources that are about caring for relatives with moderate to severe
Alzheimer's/senile dementia, click through the Honorable Alzheimer's Blogs in my
links section to the right.
Late breaking information!
In case you're curious to know more about the life of Josephine Mickow and her daughter, featured on The Alzheimer's Project: The Memory Loss Tapes, the daughter publishes on a blog, Maple Corners, as "Annie". It's multifaceted, not strictly a "caregiver's blog" (whatever that means), forthright and there's more Art of Alzheimer's, as well as an example of Josephine's Pre-Alzheimer's Art. The pictures Annie takes of their area are worth the click, alone. Some of her recent posts contain interesting reactions to she and her Mom being featured on HBO's The Alzheimer's Project.
I really like her outlook, her honesty and the pastoral (in the larger sense and without the idealized, romantic overtones) quality of her blog, which I suspect reflects from facets of her and her mom's lives.
