Kate has always adored her grandpa's storytelling-but lately he's been repeating the same stories again and again. One day, he even forgets Kate's name. Her mother's patient explanations open Kate's eyes to what so many of the elderly must confront: Alzheimer's disease and other forms of memory loss. Determined to support her grandfather, Kate explores ways to help him-and herself-cope by creating a photo album of their times together, memories that will remain in their hearts forever.
What's Happening to Grandpa? is a poignant and compassionate story about one family coping with Alzheimer's disease and memory loss. With special insight derived from her own father's struggle with Alzheimer's, California's First Lady Maria Shriver offers a touching and optimistic story that encourages awareness, acceptance, and dialogue among family and friends. $15.95.
