As I read the book there were moments when I thought Pat shared a little more than I wanted to know about family conflicts. When I finished and took a few moments to reflect about this, I realized that these personal details could be very beneficial for a lot of people to read. When Lewy invades your life it is going to bring upset and struggle and not all decisions or reactions are going to be what you wish they were when you look back at them. You just have to keep going and work with what is facing you now.
I think the most important point Pat made in this book is that care and attention given to patients in the early stages makes a huge difference in quality of life!! Find a doctor you can work with. There may not be a cure yet - but we can find ways to appreciate the time we are given and the joy of being alive even when we only get glimpses of our loved one peeking through the Lewy as time goes by.
This book combines a compelling story with many practical tips that will help families better cope with the early stages of Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Lewy Body Disease. With the Baby Boomers aging, this book is invaluable; the Snyders' story could easily become our own. They chose to shine a light into a dark place no one wants to look. Mrs. Snyder manages to balance their difficulties with moments of joy and insight. No one wants a spouse or parent to get these diagnoses, but if that happens you want a tool to keep him/her at his/her best for as long as possible. Look no further than this book!
