Honolulu (PRWEB) July 14, 2014
Alzheimers disease is a scary situation for adults. Imagine being a child and trying to understand how the diagnosis affects the entire family.
Why Cant Papa Remember My Name? is a resource for children on Alzheimers disease. The book teaches about the disease, that others are experiencing the same situation, and that mixed emotions are common and valid, all in language appropriate for children.
The main point of the story is the changing behaviors of one who has Alzheimers explained in terms a child can understand, Dr. Chang said.
As primary caregiver for her husband who had Alzheimers, Dr. Chang lived through the diseases impact on young family members.
Through my familys experience, I observed the impact of this debilitating disease on family relationships, especially that of my grandson and his papa, Dr. Chang said. There were many resources on Alzheimers written for, about, and by adults, but books on the disease from a childs perspective were limited.
Why Cant Papa Remember My Name? covers the confusion brought about by Alzheimers from a childs point of view so young readers can understand what is happening and what they can do to help.
