The author's story about the diverse views of her siblings was highly relevant to me, as an estates and trust attorney, who discusses with clients responsibilities of an Agent under durable powers of attorney for health care, and enforced my client suggestions that any child, or just any successor Agent listed on the Power, should be fully entitled to medical information, albeit only one or two people are the actual Agents for the afflicted person.
The first step for better health care is to insure that all children and interested parties have access to the medical information so that they can dialogue and debate the solutions that the Agents who have final authority will act upon. Until methods for treatment change for the better, we are all called upon to be cautious and on guard not to accelerate the harm that Alzheimer's disease inflicts upon its victims. This author has offered in her story many matters that should be considered and acted upon to minimize the grief and damage this disease causes. My book marks ran two pages, as I attempted to bullet point those items of greatest concern.
A big thank you to the author who was willing to share her experience on all of these levels, so that we readers will be able to respond in a more thoughtful and considerate manner for our own parents and loved ones.
Dr. Constance Vincent has crafted a book that incorporates her own experience, told in poignant detail, of what it is like to be a daughter watching her mother's decline. At the same time, using her expertise as a psychologist, teacher, and researcher, she guides us into the science and stages of Alzheimer's disease. Dr Vincent candidly shares her own concerns and fear that she will fall victim to the disease and the exact means (through nutrition, exercise, supplements) by which she expects to forestall its effects, should it happen. In Not Going Gently, Dr. Vincent explains the research that is now developing that could, in fact, provide answers and potential for eliminating Alzheimer's disease.
By Deanne MIncer
Alongside the sharing of this experience the Dr. Vincent gives a wealth of scientific information that can benefit everyone. As we inevitably age the statistics are high that we will be affected by this disease either personally or on behalf of a loved one. Currently there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. However, this books states how to reduce the potential Alzheimer's risk factors.
