My Two Elaines

Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer's Caregiver
  • By Martin J. Schreiber, Cathy Breitenbucher
$19.99
($27.99)
Product Description

In My Two Elaines, author Marty Schreiber, former governor of Wisconsin, watches his beloved wife, Elaine, gradually transform from the woman he fell in love with in high school, and who diligently supported his political career, to the Elaine who knows she is declining and can't remember how to cook a meal, and finally to the Elaine who no longer recognizes Marty or their children.

One part love story, one part practical advice, this compelling book includes several unique elements:

  • Excerpts from Elaine's journal, recounting her thoughts, concerns, and frustrations as the disease progresses
  • A recurring feature called What I Wish I'd Known, which provides helpful takeaways for caregivers based on Marty's observations about what he wishes he'd known sooner and done differently
  • A Q&A between Marty and neuropsychologist Dr. Michelle Braun, to equip caregivers with the right questions to ask and empower them to advocate for their loved ones and their own needs

Beyond sincere, practical advice, My Two Elaines gives the reader permission to feel the full spectrum of emotions, including humor, even in the face of this relentless illness. And the book speaks to anyone touched by this disease--spouse, child, friend, or family member.
