Patterns at Hand

Patterns at Hand.  This coffee table book offers a kind welcome to Alzheimer’s. It wraps Alzheimer’s Caregivers and family members in love as it introduces them to the new realities that Alzheimer’s brings.  This photographic study of crocheted ‘Alzheimer’s Granny Squares’ joins three threads: the impact of Alzheimer’s on the Loved One, the care the Caregiver requires,  and the effort essential to sustain vital family relationships..

HARDCOVER PHOTOBOOK. 24 pages. 9″ x 9″

This beautiful book made me misty-eyed and smile at the same time. I recommend it to any family member of someone ‘on the journey’.

— Bill Shillito, Executive Director, Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust

Barbara Ivey has put together, within the pictures and pages of this book, a resource for caring, caregiving and support for the growing community of people effected by Alzheimer’s disease. I recommend this book as a resource and a comfort…

— Dawn Maybeck, Licensed Professional Counselor

Words and photos combine to show that beyond the losses of Alzheimer’s and the strength of Caregivers, is a wholeness founded on love. I would recommend it to Caregivers who are beginning to ‘hit the wall’ and need to reframe, focusing back on the individual instead of the disease.

— Rev. Derek M. Wolter, Director of Spiritual Care, Lutheran Home, Wauwatosa, WI
