The Silverado Story: A Memory-Care Culture Where Love is Greater than Fear
by Loren Shook and Stephen Winner
Life doesn't have to end when Alzheimer's dementia or other memory-eroding diseases take hold. At least that's what Alzheimer's futurists Loren Shook and Steve Winner believed. But it wasn't until these two men, from widely divergent backgrounds and living three thousand miles apart, came together that their ideas were put into action and their theories were put to the test - with stunning results. They brought living back to people stricken with memory impairing ailments, and loving back to families who thought they had lost a precious part of themselves.
The "Silverado Story" is about uniquely vibrant and active care for those with memory impairment. It is about two men who had the courage to follow their own hearts. Even more, it is about hope and happiness - and how to achieve it - for those who have all but given up. It is the eye-opening and inspirational story of what can happen when love replaces fear.
