by Linda Scacco

Always My Grandpa A Story for Children About Alzheimer's Disease Synopsis

This heartwarming tale describes what it is like to be close to a grandparent who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Daniel and his mom spend every summer with his Grandpa at a cottage by the sea. But as the summers pass, Grandpa begins to change. Daniel learns that since Grandpa has Alzheimer's disease, he will have trouble remembering all the things that belong to him - his clothes, his words, his memories - and eventually, his own grandson. Through gentle narration and easy-to-understand explanations, the book explains Alzheimer's disease and how it affects children, and families.
