My Friend Greg O' Brien, Diagnosed With Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease

 He shares strategies for LIVING with Alzheimer's disease. This video is easy for kids to understand. 

I met Greg O'Brien at the National Alzheimer's Summit and I think he is just amazing. Tune into this funny and inspiring and optimistic interview with Dr. Lisa Genova! His book On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer's speaks of faith, humor and hope from his perspective. 

I think tweens and teens would find this book so incredibly helpful! He gives suggestions about how to live with the disease. I would have loved to have read this book a few years ago. 


There is now an incredible documentary about him called, "Have You Heard About Greg". Here is a trailer link:

The Problem of Alzheimer's by Jason Karlawish

 I was introduced to Alzheimer's at the age of 4 when I became a caregiver to my grandmother who had Alzheimer's disease. This book is a must-read. Thank you Lynda Everman for bringing it to my attention.
