When writer Frank Fuerst’s wife, June, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease 21 years ago, Fuerst had difficulty finding information on how to take care of her. Now Fuerst has written a book, called “Alzheimer’s Care with Dignity,” that he hopes will help others care for relatives with dementia. Cecelia Mason recently spoke to Fuerst and filed this report as part of our series “Aging With Grace and Dignity.”
