“Puzzles To Remember:Help younger kids understand Alzheimer's Disease”

In 2013, when I was a junior at Boston University, I wrote a book entitled Why Did Grandma Put Her Underwear In The Refrigerator? It is a light-hearted children's story that seamlessly provides young readers with a tool-box to help them overcome their fears and frustrations in the event that they have to cope with a family member suffering from the disease.

This 40-page fully illustrated children’s book is told from a second-grader’s perspective in her own style and vocabulary, but it lovingly shares real strategies, scientific insights and lessons of dignity from which adult caregivers may also benefit. Most importantly, it provideseasy-to-understand explainations of what happens inside the brains of Alzheimer's patients, and how to cope with gradual memory loss.
