Exploring the human side of Alzheimer's

Published on October 15, 2013 at 7:29 AM · No Comments

AgingCare.com, the online community of more than 6 million people caring for elderly loved ones, has released Fade to Blank: Life Inside Alzheimer's—a compelling and unprecedented account that explores the human side of Alzheimer's, as told by three families whose lives have been forever altered by this disease.

"We spent a great deal of time analyzing thousands of questions, answers and comments about Alzheimer's on AgingCare.com," said Joe Buckheit, Founder and President. "It became clear that even with all the information available, people wanted to know more about how this disease impacts real life." 

To answer their questions and provide further insights, Fade to Blank takes you inside the lives of three courageous families living with Alzheimer's—from their views, in their words. It demonstrates that there is so much more to this devastating disease than its finality: more love, more hope, more humanity.

"No one has ever presented the 'human' side of Alzheimer's in this way before," said Anne-Marie Botek, author of Fade to Blank and editor-in-chief of AgingCare.com. "The unfiltered sentiments expressed by these incredible men and women have the power to truly transform the way Alzheimer's is perceived."

"This project is a true labor of love," said Michele DeSocio, daughter and primary caregiver of Jean DelCampo, whose story is featured in Fade to Blank. "It is one of a kind—showing the real Alzheimer's in a multifaceted approach that will surely have a profound impact. It captured my mother's and my journey with honesty, grace and dignity."
