Though more and more families are facing a loved one's diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, the process of coping with this changing lifestyle is no easier. In a real-life exploration of what it means to love someone unconditionally, John DiCicco writes about caring for his father in the last few years of his life. At times John, like many others, feared the disease and the ways it changed his life and his father's. Through this journey of nurturing and loving, John came to see that he could accept and embrace human frailty in a way that glorifies the soul. In Nurturing Love through the Silence, friends and family of those with Alzheimer's can see the clear path of spiritual growth in this season of life, and through the silence, they can all be comforted. Alzheimer's robs people of their memories, their ability to communicate with loved ones and friends, and their ability to recognize their own image; it takes away our very soul. It is the cruelest of all diseases. John has experienced what you are going through; all the guilt, frustration, anger and hopelessness which makes this book an invaluable guide for you to follow.
