In late January of 2009, author Betty Roberts needed to confront what she had suspected for weeks and even months. Her husband, Paul, was in the early stages of Alzheimers. A member of the Apollo team who helped put the man on the moon, he was now forgetting how to live like a man on earth. In Midnight Chronicles, she shares her husbands journey as he deals with Alzheimers day after day.
Told in journal format through the eyes of his nurse/caregiver/wife, it relates the effect on his life and on the lives of his family from the early, undiagnosed stage one to the disability of stage seven. Betty covers, in detail, the seven stages of Alzheimers and what they did to handle and combat each stage as it occurred.
Offering firsthand insight into this disease, Midnight Chronicles shares the details of Bettys life with Paul, including the challenges, the choices, the tears, the fears, the grief, but most of all the love.
