Join Linda Guebert, RN Parish Nurse Manager at UnityPoint Health, for a discussion of the book “My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver." Author Martin J. Schreiber counsels those who take on the challenges and rewards of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s.
The book provides small but monumental suggestions for how to respect not only the person with Alzheimer’s but also the caregiver him or herself. Schreiber shares why it’s crucial that caregivers practice self-care in order to safeguard against compassion fatigue and illness. Come and join our discussion and learn about how Alzheimer’s affects the lives of those we love.
A limited number of books are available at Davenport Public Library (Fairmount location) on a first-come, first-serve basis.
