Choosing Joy in the Face of Alzheimer’s Disease

Helene Berger and her husband Ady found out he had Alzheimer’s shortly after their 50th wedding anniversary. The news was tough to take, but the couple was determined not to be defined by the diagnosis. Helene tells their story in her new book Choosing Joy: Alzheimer’s A Book of Hope. She acknowledges that the approach that they used might not work for everyone, but hopes that her book helps make living with Alzheimer’s easier for both the patient and caregivers.
