A Stranger in the House: A Journal of My Life Living the Last Years with My Husband's Alzheimer's

Jacci Smith Reed

It was on a cold wintry day in the year 2001 that Alzheimer's disease-unexpectedly, without warning or permission-appeared at the Reeds' New York doorstep and made its presence known in the lives of Ron and Jacci Smith Reed. In this memoir, Jacci shares her reflections, frustrations, feelings, and truths learned during the time her husband suffered from Alzheimer's disease. Written from the heart, learned from the mind, and driven by the spirit, A Stranger in the House presents a firsthand look at how this disease affects the patient, the caregiver, the family, and friends. Begun as a daily journal to help Jacci cope, this memoir describes the challenges of daily life and provides a look at the resources she used to help her deal patiently with her husband who had become a man she didn't recognize. Emotional and honest, A Stranger in the House gives insight into the treacherous journey experienced by the loved ones of those diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
