This is a #1 New Release in Senior Travel
What would you do if you learned that your spouse or partner has progressive dementia, possibly Alzheimer’s disease? This is the brutally honest journal of one spouse and reluctant caregiver that “ran for the hills.” Of course she took her husband George along.
What challenges did Susan encounter? How can she enjoy the present — a journey across the U.S.A. – while worrying about the future? How do she and George deal with his increasing dementia symptoms?
And the biggest question of all, after 40 years together, can they remain married and loving through it all? Travel along with George and Susan. You will learn, you will laugh and maybe shed a tear as you too go Alzheimer’s Trippin’ with George.
A portion of the author’s proceeds for each sale (paperback or ebook) will be donated to Alzheimer’s Research and/or Caregiver Assistance.
Don’t let the number of pages scare you. There are LOTS of pictures to help tell the story. The Kindle version shows the pictures in color on your tablet or phone.
About the Author: Susan Straley lived in Rockford, Illinois and Waukesha, Wisconsin before moving to Inverness, Florida in 2008.
She started to journal at age 16.
In 2008 Susan and George traveled by trike around Wisconsin and she wrote about their travels on Crazyguyonabike.com. The journal with details and humor quickly gained a following, especially among those who also rode recumbent tricycle. Her first on-line journal has received over 120,000 hits. She and George have since gone on several other tricycle tours on which Sue recorded the joys and challenges with pictures.
Her first book, Alzheimer’s Trippin’ with George is available in Kindle and Paperback. It continues to demonstrate her passion for openness, humor, honesty, and sharing what she learns along the way. It also demonstrates that life still holds joy amid challenges.
Her second book, Alzheimer’s Trippin’ with George – The Journey Continues is scheduled for release in 2019. As George’s dementia continues they still enjoy riding with friends on the trail. And the community of friends, family, and beyond step in to hold them up. This truly is a positive story of how the love and support of family, friends, and community can make the days of the dementia journey and the caregiving journey flow.
Thank you for visiting my stop on the tour and thanks to Sage’s Blog Tours for the opportunity to help promote this beautifully designed and thoughtful book!
