The Long Way Home
A Journey Through Alzheimer's
"This book has provided a great deal of insight & comfort to those experiencing the many tragedies of Alzheimer’s."
Dr. R.E. Bourns, B.Sc., M.D.
A “Must Read” for anyone dealing with any level of Alzheimer’s Disease!
A poignant and penetrating account of the author’s turbulent journey through Alzheimer’s as she cared for her husband, the unwitting protagonist of this tale, The Long Way Home.focuses on the human—and often humorous—aspects of the disease rather than the medical ones. It is an honest and accessible work, appealing to the average reader.
It is a story that continues to be repeated, countless times over, throughout the world; a story that needs to be told so that others travelling on a similar journey will know they are not alone.
Marian Ritchie was just an ordinary person, thrust into an extraordinary situation, certainly not of her choosing—and not in her line of expertise—but she learned to cope with her husband’s devastating disease along the way, through her experiences, her failures and her successes.
