Item description for My Journey into Alzheimer's Disease by Robert Davis & Betty Davis...
Overview Robert Davis was pastor of one of Miami's largest churches, an outstanding preacher, a dynamic man, with growing ministry. But subtle changes began to take place within his brilliant mine-bizarre symptoms and behavior patterns-and his phenomenal memory began to fade. After months of testing, the doctor broke the news-Alzheimer's, permanent and irreversible. "I wish I could tell you that it's cancer," his doctor said. This book offers unusual inspiration, written by a man who remains a ministering servant to the end-using his last lucid thoughts to share with us his walk of faith into Alzheimer's Disease.
Publishers Description A book of encouragement of how one man of faith faced the oncoming darkness of Alzheimer's disease. In a powerful story of courage and faith, Davis shows how God gives strength and grace.

`Since I am new to Alzheimer Care Giver' Mar 8, 2007
I am the care giver for my husband of 57 years, and have nothing to compare what I am going through so this is really helpful. One thing that I would find helpful is how prevelent some of the symptoms are. I am doing what he want to do, it is his life and his house and who am I to tell him how to feel. I appreciate hearing the things other care givers have experienced.
I thought this was about Alzheimer's....... Feb 6, 2007
I bought this book because I thought it would be a personal account of the signs and symptoms of early stage Alzheimer's. I read another called Living in the Labyrinth and found it fascinating, and I highly recommend that book to anyone interested in or having a personal experience with this horrible disease. Robert Davis' book, on the other hand, was more like a 140 page sermon full of praise for the Lord that bestowed this disease on him, bible quotations, and not much else. Let me say here that I am a nurse who has worked with these special patients for more than 10 years, and I was looking for more insight into the mind of someone who could still put their thoughts on paper. Guess I just like the cold, hard facts without all the fluff.

An Adult Child's Experience Sep 29, 2002
This book is so insightful, especially the portions written by his wife, Betty. My father-in-law is in the final stages of this disease. I wish that I had discovered this book when he was going through the first phases. It would have helped us be even more understanding. ( We patiently listend to the same story over and over. In Bob's and Betty's words, they tell why.) My mother-in-law cried as she read the book. I urge anyone family that is experiencing this to purchase this book! An excellent resource!
My Journey into Alzheimers by Robert Davis Aug 3, 2002
I found the book "My Journey into Alzheimers" to be exceptionally informative and inspirational. To read a book on Alzheimers Disease, written from the perspective of one afflicted is unique. Robert Davis has given his readers a look into the day to day battle against a much dreaded illness. This book is very thought provoking and touching. As a christian my self I was inspired by his continued relationship with God,despite his disease. I also found it very beneficial to gain insight into how a person with Alzheimers thinks and feels, and how this changes as the disease progresses. The practical advice on how to initiate a conversation with someone who has Alzheimers is helpful.No doubt,many readers will be thankful for the courage and dedication Robert Davis and his wife have put into this book. Having been permitted into their lives during this most difficult time is truly remarkable. However I find myself wondering how things are with Mr.and Mrs. Davis now. Is there perhaps a website, or e mail address where I can write? Thank you once again for this excellent resource. Debbie
