Alzheimer's Strikes Every 71 Seconds! Carefree Senior Living Press Releases New Book: 'What the Heck Do We Do Now? Families Facing Alzheimer's'

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Carefree Senior Living Press, based in Santa Barbara, announces the release of its first book by local author and Alzheimer's care professional John G. Bloomer. The book, notably titled "What The Heck Do We Do Now? Families Facing Alzheimer's," offers practical advice to navigating some of the uncharted waters of Alzheimer's and Dementia Care. It touchingly looks at "real" situations families face when the diagnosis of Alzheimer's impacts their lives. Unlike almost any book on the market today, it also offers advice and information about licensed residential facilities specializing in the care of these gentle souls.

The book is a narrative of three families and their experiences with this dread disease. Along the way it demonstrates why certain choices are better than others. The information is integrated so family members do not have to read through list after list to see how the information fits their circumstances.

As Jackie Marston, current Vice President of Carefree Senior Living in California, Executive Administrator of Villa Alamar Care facility, and fondly referred to in local circles as the "dementia diva," sums up:

"Finally, a book that touches the heart, and is a reference manual for families as they begin the uncertain journey through Alzheimer's. The twists and turns and mistakes and successes are described as they happened without exaggeration. Anyone who finds themselves caring for those with this disease should give this small book a read."

This handy publication offers guidance for families and caregivers dealing with dementia, Alzheimer's and memory loss and helps move them from a place of fear to a place of peace. How to handle "embarrassing" social behaviors, directing those with memory loss, obtaining legal and medical advice, conservatorships, finding assisted living facilities, and disease prevention are all described for the layperson.

Author, John G. Bloomer, describes his personal story of Alzheimer's:

"My wife and I entered the world of Alzheimer's Disease 22 years ago, with a tearful call from her mother who was sure something was wrong with her brain. Hearing her plea for help, I immediately thought, what the heck do we do now? Much of this book is the result of our experiences, both negative and positive, in attempting to care for and protect her."

This is a book of passion! Mr. Bloomer is called upon to speak and counsel hundreds every year. As the incidence of Alzheimer's disease increases astronomically, the demand for practical applied information of this subject has never been greater.

160 pages, soft-cover. Copies also available at, at Chaucer's Bookstore in Santa Barbara, CA, (805) 682-6787, and bookstores throughout the US.
