The book Born of Desperation assumes that the reader has a basic knowledge of Alzheimer’s or that they, their family or people for whom they care, may be affected by the disease. Its purpose is simple! Our desperation to find a cure often results in wishful-thinking and the propagation of myths. This book attempts to separate myths from reality and offer authenticated advice on ways in which the progression of the disease may be slowed, as well as tried and tested practical suggestions on methods by which the burden of coping and caring for people with Alzheimer’s disease may be eased.
