A Year to Remember...
with My Mother and Alzheimer's Disease

In Memory of

I'm Brenda S. Parris. In August 1994, I quit graduate school at Florida State and came home to Alabama to take care of my mother who had Alzheimer's Disease. I took care of her until the end of December 1995 when we put her in a nursing home. Then she died in April 1996.

I want to share all the information I can find about this disease because I know that knowledge is essential to being a good caregiver. Even those who are not caregivers need to know about this disease because almost everyone knows someone who has Alzheimer's, and probably most of us are at risk for getting it ourselves.
