Author to deliver presentation at Family Of God event
Family of God Community Church of Newaygo is excited to have Cynthia Hughes share her recently published book, GG Forgot My Name on Thursday, May 19th at 6:45 pm. There will be a light supper served prior to the presentation at 6:00pm.
Cynthia Hughes’ book is about how Alzheimer’s Disease affects families. She will discuss “The Top 10 Hints”-Adjusting to Alzheimer’s.” Cynthia will talk about different examples from her family’s experiences as the Alzheimer’s progressed, and the love and kindness that was shown to her mother that provided the foundation for her book.
Here are some thoughts Cynthia sent on adjusting to Alzheimer’s.
“As a Health Educator, I thought I knew a lot about Alzheimer’s Disease. Yet when my mom started experiencing many of the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s I previously had taught others about, did I realize that I really needed hints. I needed hints on how to adjust to having someone you love, develop Alzheimer’s.
“It was after many days of feeling frustrated from not knowing how to “fix” the changes mom was experiencing and trying many, many ways to make days easier-for both of us, did I discover what seemed to help on most days. Many of these findings, which I honestly believe helped us have better days, are included in my Top 10 Hints-Adjusting to Alzheimer’s. “
Cheryl Schneider from the Commission on Aging or Community Health will also be available to join in this discussion and answer questions.
