Editorial Reviews


Ms. Avadian offers an honest look at Alzheimer s from a family perspective, touching on issues of family, patient s rights and protection, and the personal joys and pain that come with caring for a loved one afflicted with this disease. Helen Rosenberg, Ph.D. Director, Gerontology Certificate Program Univ. of Wisconsin-Parkside Kenosha, WI --Publisher

A masterpiece of information and insider knowledge, Brenda weaves answers and solutions into every page. She takes the reader on a journey covering every possible question a caregiver could ask and does not leave a single stone unturned. This is the most thorough, honest, helpful, and empowering book written for caregivers to date. Jane Verity, OTR, FT, CSP Dementia Specialist, Founder and Director --Publisher

"Where's My Shoes" demonstrates the joys and awkwardness, fears and uncertainties, responsibilities and outcomes, of caring for one's parent. But most of all, it offers real options and prudent solutions that will benefit anyone faced with this decision. It cannot be denied that "Where's My Shoes?" is a love story. On the surface it tells the true story in real time, as Brenda faces reality and makes hard, yet informed decisions. But between the lines, it's about the youngest daughter taking responsibility for family affairs and the care of her beloved father. Mark Warner, Co-founder, Author, The Complete Guide to Alzheimer s-Proofing Your Home --Publisher
