Always My Grandpa: A Story for Children about Alzheimer's Disease
Daniel and his mom spend every summer with his Grandpa at a cottage by the sea. Daniel loves these summer visits: playing baseball, walking on the beach, watching the sunset, and hearing Grandpa's stories of his fishing boat. As the summer passes, Grandpa begins to change. Daniel learns that since Grandpa has Alzheimer's disease, he will have trouble remembering all the things that belong to him--his clothes, his words, his memories--and eventually, his own grandson. When a grandparent or other loved one develops Alzheimer's disease, children almost always struggle with confusion. In addition, they are often afraid, angry, or embarrassed by the sometimes odd and unpredictable behavior they may witness.
