Alzheimer’s Advocate and Caregiver Releases First Book to Honor Dad
Brandon Burke, a six-year Alzheimer’s advocate and caregiver is releasing his first book, Rediscovering Dad & Discovering Myself: A Journey Through the Impact of Alzheimer’s. With both National Alzheimers Awareness Month and National Family Caregiver Month in November this is the best time to release Burke’s book. The six-year Alzheimer’s advocate and caregiver shares his father-son relationship, family history and journey leading up to the diagnosis that has changed his life.
Burke has had prior history with the effects of Alzheimers disease through the diagnosis of his beloved grandmother. He saw first hand the mayhem that it puts the diagnosed through and also the interference in life that the caregiver goes through as well. In 2015, Brandon was faced with the realities of Alzheimer’s disease front and center when his father was diagnosed.
AARP reports that ” Today more than 1 in 5 Americans are caregivers” But the question is who will care for the caregiver?
Brandon wrote this book as an outline to guide other caregivers around the world to take care of their loved ones in their time of need, but to not forget about taking care of themselves.
It is my hope that this book will shed light on the role of caregivers and provide a path for them to follow, bring more awareness to the world about the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, and highlight the bond between father and son”Brandon Burke
