Complicated Minds: (Including Mine)
By: Dianne Haaland
About the Book
There is a saying: If you know one Alzheimer’s case, you know only one Alzheimer’s case. Each experience with Alzheimer’s, for both the patient and their caregiver, is filled with unique struggles and complications, though one thing is always certain: Dealing with Alzheimer’s is never easy. In this memoir, Dianne Haaland recalls her ordeal as a wife and caregiver of someone whose mental state was in swift decline, chronicling the nightmares that came with it regarding for-profit care facilities, unethical lawyers, greedy children, and constant medical scares.
