Sometimes we’re reluctant to admit that person silently hiding within us is a much better version of our self than we ever realized was possible. That’s what Veasey eventually learned, the hard way, after her husband died in 2017. That’s when she became her parents’ caregiver 24/7, they both had Alzheimer’s! This is a truthful, personal story that bares the author’s soul as she struggled to find acceptance, forgiveness, and peace. 

You’ll shed a few tears and laugh along the way. But, never forget that this could be you one day, a reluctant caregiver for a loved one. As Vicki states in the introduction, “No one should enter this world of caregiving blindsided, without some idea of what to expect.” Eventually, she was able to look herself in the mirror at night and say, “I’m an amazing caregiver”!

Vicki Veasey’s Good Morning I Love You is one of my favorite books in guiding families through the trials and tribulations of being a caregiver for a senior loved one afflicted with Alzheimer’s Disease. The subtitle and blurb “Maintaining Sanity & Humor Amidst Widowhood, Caregiving and Alzheimer’s” certainly lends credibility to Veasey’s message, as readers not only will entrust her advice, but they will trust that they too are not alone on this journey.

Vicki has written a raw, honest, and compassionate account of what caregiving of Alzheimer’s patients is like. Folk who have been through this will most certainly identify, and those who are beginning this process have a helpful and clear vision of what is ahead. This book is a must read for caregivers, pastors, and anyone else involved in the care of those suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Vicki is faced with caring for both her parents while dealing with the declining health and loss of her husband. Like many who have a rough time, she learned a lot about caring for folks with differing dementia symptoms. Thankfully for us she shares what she learns in neat little tips scattered throughout her book. If you are now facing the prospect of dealing with a loved one with dementia, read this book and several books to help guide you!
