Alzheimer's Trippin' with George
Click on the video to hear a sample of the audio book. In this sample, George and I are on a last-hurrah road-trip following his diagnosis.
George keeps leaving the door open.
It wouldn't be a big problem except we are house & cat sitting and I don't want the cat to get out on my watch!
George, however, is living with dementia. He used to be the one to make sure all the cupboards and doors and drawers were shut, I was the one that would neglect them and leave them open. Dementia has changed all that.
Listen in at this sample.
I am excited to have this book released in Audio book! Robin Siegerman does an excellent job reading with the light and adventurous mood I tried to create while telling our story.
Narrated by Voice Actor Robin Seigerman.
Available on Amazon/Audible and itunes.
"If you think life is over after an Alzheimer's diagnosis, then you should read Susan Straley's Alzheimer's Trippin' with George: Diagnosis to Discovery in 10,000 Miles. Susan and George clearly love the outdoors, exploring and riding their three-wheeled recumbent "trikes" on various trails. In journal form and with lots of photos, Susan shares their story of traveling across the country and the day-by-day experience of watching George's decline. It's an inspirational journey, despite the losses, and I was uplifted by reading it!" Amazon Reader
