This video(2 mins long) was done several years ago. For the last 2 years I do not get to speak to my mom everyday. Being a long distance caregiver is not easy.

After 10+ years mom can still have  moments of clarity and then "break" my heart.

Book Review
There are lots of Alzheimer's books out there. What makes this different?
This book, is at its heart, the journey of a mother and daughter who had missed out on a deep and loving relationship in life until Alzheimer's reared its ugly head. In the midst of making sense of the diagnosis, Lisa opened her heart, mind and soul to her mother, and found a way to connect with her mom at the deepest level across 1,000 miles. I read this book while on an airplane, and the tears flowed. But, they were not tears of sadness. The tears were in response to Lisa's enormous love for her mother and her gift of sharing mom/daughter moments that gave me hope for all those families out there dealing with this horrible disease. There is no cure, but Lisa and her book gives us insight into how to make each day....each moment be as special as possible for the person with Alzheimer's and their family members.

IS THIS LIFE?
IS THIS LIFE? Alzheimer's is a fascinating disease when compared to other illnesses it storms in, attacks all of one's brain cells, eventually leaving nothing in its path. It deeply saddens me as I question how this is possible? Even more frustrating is tha...

I have a blog and a recently published book-My Mom My Hero about the journey I share with my mother since she has Alzheimer's.
Introduction

Lisa Hirsch is a popular blogger with a worldwide audience. She had a long, successful career in the fashion industry and had numerous articles published in the US, the UK, and Canada. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and has one loving son. Please visit her blog
 

When Lisa Hirsch found out her mother, Ruth, had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, her love, appreciation, and caring for her mother was transformed. To Lisa’s surprise, it has brought her and Ruth closer together than they’ve ever been. My Mom My Hero tells the story of this mother-daughter relationship through a series of entries from Lisa’s internationally popular blog. Ultimately this is an uplifting and inspirational book for anyone who’s going through the difficult and often lonely ordeal of caring for a loved one who suffers from this devastating illness.
