Cindy Weinstein is a professor of English at the California Institute of Technology. We're discussing her book, Finding The Right Words, which is one part journey of coming to terms with her Father's Alzheimer's & and a one-part guidebook. Writing gave Cindy one way to talk about her grief, but she knew she lacked the scientific vocabulary to make sense of her Father's slow and traumatic decline.
Through professional contacts, Cindy found Dr. Bruce L. Miller, a neurologist at the University of California, San Francisco. After years of collaboration and friendship, they completed Finding the Right Words. This book is an invaluable guide for families dealing with a life-changing diagnosis and a conversation that combines memoir, literature, and the science and history of brain health into a unique educational and meditative work. Their two seemingly heartbreaking and empowering perspectives give readers a fuller understanding of Alzheimer's than any one voice could.
