Come meet author and Tuscaloosa native, Dorothy Scarbrough, as she introduces her first book: I Am Still with You: Our Fight Against the Losses from Alzheimer's and Dementia Diseases.
"After sixty-five years of marriage, my husband, Bill now has Alzheimer’s disease or some form of dementia. I am a registered nurse with a career in gerontogical nursing including dementia care; however, this knowledge did not emotionally prepare me for the depth of feelings and the multiple losses with dementia. It is a book about how a couple responded to these losses from this dreadful disease as the wife unexpectedly became his caregiver." -Dorothy Scarbrough, RNC, BSN, MSN
This book offers hope in small things, emotional release for the reader, and survival when facing Alzheimer’s disease on a daily basis. I Am Still With You stresses that patients with dementia are people who still live day-to-day without past memories and have no dreams of a future. Yet this person needs joy, understanding, and love plus humor and deserves relief from fear and rejection every day.
