An article about the Alzheimer's Reading Room (ARR) was published on the New Old Age Website yesterday.

I wanted to alert you to a new article that was published about the Alzheimer's Reading Room (ARR). If you have the time, take a look and enter a comment below the article about the ARR if you have the time or inclination. Go here to read the article .

While Jane Gross was interviewing me, I mentioned that most Alzheimer's caregivers, including me, have difficulty maintaining relationships. This happens as the disease progresses, and as friends and family fade away over time. See, Are Alzheimer's Caregivers the Forgotten? .

However, I consider myself to be very fortunate. During those most difficult times when caregiving seems the most burdensom, I receive emails and comments of encouragement from all over the World. For me, this turns burden into joy.

I can say I am truly blessed. I want to say thanks to the Collective Brain of the Alzheimer's Reading Room,

I am never Lonely, and I am never Alone.

I hope some of you feel this way.
