Preserving Your Memory magazine - Winter 2011
Preserving Your Memory Magazine

Welcome to winter and the new issue of Preserving Your Memory. This is the time of year when we spend the most time indoors, and with that in mind, we take a look at new books on caregiving you'll want to take
note of (page 8).

You'll also want to read our cover story, an interview with author and Fox News' senior managing editor, Dr. Manny Alvarez (page 18).

While we're thinking of books, our story on author Gail Sheehy focuses on her most recent book, Passages in Caregiving, and all she learned from providing care for her husband (page 26).

Of course, caregiving will be a major concern for millions of Americans as the baby boomer generation begins to retire. Are we ready for greater numbers of Alzheimer's patients requiring care and caregiving? Find out beginning on page 10.
Just because it's winter doesn't mean we can take time off from taking care of ourselves. Toward that end, we learn how we can stay healthy even as we have fun at holiday parties (page 22).

I hope your winter includes time spent enjoying this issue of Preserving Your Memory!
