Alzheimer’s Association® and Chicken Soup for the Soul Release Collection of 101 Stories of Caregiving, Coping and Compassion

Six local Michigan residents have been selected as published authors in the new edition of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living with Alzheimer’s & Other Dementias. The book, comprised of essays, stories and poems from people living with Alzheimer's or another dementia, caregivers and affected friends and family members, will help raise awareness of the Alzheimer’s epidemic and comfort those impacted by the disease.

For more than 20 years, Chicken Soup for the Soul has published inspirational books with extraordinary stories. The Alzheimer’s Association and Chicken Soup for the Soup collaborated to create this important collection to support the more than five million Americans living with Alzheimer’s and their 15.5 million caregivers. The personal submissions provide practical advice, encouragement, insight and support to readers.

Out of thousands of submissions, there were only 101 personal stories chosen to be published in this book, including:
