Catch a Falling Star: Living with Alzheimer’s

Full of ideas on how to cope, it offers spouses, relatives, caretakers, nursing-home attendants-anyone who is facing this disease-a clear understanding of what actually happens to the Alzheimer’s patient. The late Siegried Achorn Centerwall ’46, M.D., once described this book as “compelling; in truth, the ultimate love story.” $9.95 postpaid (one-third of price goes to club); paperback, 215 pp., 103 drawings. Order from the author at Sirpos Press (see above). Alumnae have called to thank Jean for writing this helpful book.
