Jan's Story: Love Lost to the Long Goodbye of Alzheimer's | [Barry Petersen]

Jan's Story: Love Lost to the Long Goodbye of Alzheimer's

Acclaimed CBS News reporter Barry Petersen writes about hearing the unimaginable; what it meant, what it still means, what he did---and didn't do---and how this beautiful love story needs to be heard by the thousands of families who have already heard that same devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's disease. Even though Barry has spent his long-time, award-winning television career covering wars and events that shaped the world, he was not even slightly prepared for what happened to his darling wife, Jan, and how it would impact his life.

    If you could sum up Jan's Story in three words, what would they be?

    Powerful for the caregiver


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jan's Story?

    Jan used to pack when they would go on trips and he'd have to now go in and repack because Jan had packed too much and some were for cold weather others for summer.


    What does Barry Petersen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His true feelings and emotions


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I needed to take it in pieces to fully absorb.


    Any additional comments?

    If you or someone you know is a caregiver it's a must read. Loved the truth Barry tells it like it is.
