The main focus of her book is the concept of both partners
being victims of the disease. The non-Alzheimer’s spouse is more
than a caregiver, but often a patient as well.
Together the Alzheimer’s Couple ride through the
lengthy course of the disease together as on a tandem bicycle. There
is no getting off, one without the other, until the disease has run
its painful course.

The Alzheimer’s Couple is a poignant love story, where Dr. Whyte
gives the reader a personal look at life with her beloved husband
John. This book will surely aid and support the couple that is
experiencing a life transition because of Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Colleen Whyte
I would highly recommend this book for families facing this
horrific challenge which robs families of their minds and lives. I
was moved to tears at how she was able to care for her husband so
lovingly through the stages of confusion with dignity.
