Episodes Notes

A few months after their fiftieth wedding anniversary, Helene Berger’s husband, Ady, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

When he got the news from the doctor, he responded, “I don’t want to live anymore.” From that moment on, Helene faced her husband’s diagnosis with a fierce determination to find creative ways to make their lives as fulfilling as possible, for as long as possible. She chronicles this journey in her touching new book, CHOOSING JOY: ALZHEIMER’S: A Book of HOPE.
