Lourdes Senior Community is proud to support A Journey in Faith by Edward Grinnan. After his mother (Estelle) was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, Ed’s life and perception of the world around him changed forever. Estelle became a resident of Clausen Manor where Ed visited her regularly. A Journey in Faith details his journey and struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease, family, spirituality and faith.
Book Summary: As he watched his mother slip inescapable into Alzheimer’s, Edward Grinnan, editor-in-chief of Guidepost Magazine, began to dwell on his own vulnerability. Would he, too, follow his mother’s path to a diagnosis of this devastating and incurable disease? Could he already see the signs?
In his honest and deeply personal book, Edward shares the all-too-relatable progression of his mother’s Alzheimer’s, including its impact on him, his siblings, his quest to understand the disease, and answers about his uncertain fate.
