Summary "Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia in the world. In 2019, about 5.8 million Americans were living with this disease. Alzheimer's is often called a "family disease" because watching a loved one's health decline can affect the entire family. Understanding this situation can be especially difficult for children. Why doesn't grandma remember my name? Why did grandpa have to move into a care home? This book will help young readers understand what Alzheimer's disease is and provide them with healthy coping strategies. Photographs and age-appropriate text aid readers in understanding what's going on and what might be different"-- Provided by publisher.
