Alzheimer’s article BC Magazine Editors’ Pick

My article “Alzheimer’s: Tips on Understanding the Disease and its Limitations” has made the news again.

Each week the BlogCritic editors choose top story picks for each section of news. My article made BC Magazine Editors’ Picks: Febrary 5 through February 11 in the Culture section of the magazine.

Here's what Editor Diana Hartman had to say.

CULTURE
From Culture Editor Diana Hartman:

The title says it all. In Alzheimer's: Tips on Understanding the Disease and its Limitations Joanne D. Kiggins compassionately reveals the often ignored side of Alzheimer's (the caretakers) to those who may have overlooked the intensity and demands of caring for others.

Thank you Diana for picking my article as a feature for the week.
