AlzAuthors Cares During the Covid-19 Crisis, Offers Free Anthologies

by | Mar 26, 2020 | News

The Covid-19 crisis is disrupting lives all over the world. With 80 confirmed cases in Mecklenburg County as of Sunday, and the numbers rising every day, caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s and dementia are hit particularly hard. Caregivers are becoming more isolated as families are encouraged to stay at home, businesses and restaurants have closed, and support groups are unable to meet. AlzAuthors, a global community of authors writing about Alzheimer’s and dementia, wants to help by offering free copies of their anthologies, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiving Stories.

“Our hearts go out to our global community during this pandemic,” says director Ann Campanella, a Davidson graduate and author of the Alzheimer’s memoir Motherhood: Lost and Found. “Our management team is spread across the United States and Canada, and many of us are under stay-at-home orders. As daughters of dementia, we share an understanding of the unique challenges and pressures facing those caring for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, but the limitations posed under this situation make caregiving more overwhelming than usual.”

The AlzAuthors website offers over 230 books and blogs to support caregivers. The anthologies introduce readers to over 100 books about Alzheimer’s and dementia and the personal stories behind them.

Here are three ways to get a copy without leaving your home:

  1. Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiving Stories (VOLUME I) Kindle.
     The ebook is available to download for free through Book Funnel.
  2. Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiving Stories (VOLUME I) Audiobook.  We have codes available for free downloads. Email us at [email protected], and we will send you one. Please indicate whether you need a US or UK code.
  3. Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiving Stories (VOLUME II) Kindle. The ebook version is available for free for a limited time, from Monday, March 23rd to Friday, March 27th.

“We hope these books let you know you are not alone,” says Campanella. “May you and your loved ones stay well and be blessed.”
