The book The Inheritance by Niki Kapsambelis is an emotional and informative look into the world of Alzheimer's disease. With the increase of our aging population, Alzheimer's disease is growing. In fact, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease almost every minute. For those trying to cope with the disease themselves or in their loved one, they are more than just a number. Kapsambelis captures this reality, simultaneously telling the story of one family, the DeMoes, their battle with the disease, and instructing readers about the disease.
Beyond the symptoms, Kapsambelis dives into the human reality of how those symptoms affect the lives of those around them. Kapsambelis educates about the statistics, treatments, and realities of living with Alzheimer's, and gives outsiders a window into the lives of those who live this reality every day. Her book is effective at raising awareness about the disease and creating an appreciation of what those who deal with this disease experience.
For caregivers and loved ones of those with Alzheimer's, The Inheritance will give them the information they need to help both themselves and their loved one navigate this difficult path. From treatment options to heredity, Kapsambelis provides a comprehensive look at Alzheimer's and its devastating effects. Perhaps the biggest benefit of The Inheritance is that readers can walk away with knowledge, hope, and a feeling that they are not alone.
The Inheritance has gained 5 stars on Amazon and has received glowing reviews. As you are learning to deal with the changes that aging can bring, be patient with yourself, patient with your loved one, seek advice and answers to questions, and remember you are not in this alone.
