Stephen Hoag, PhD, will join us the second half of our show.  He was raised in Wallingford, Connecticut, and has been a teacher and education administrator for almost 40 years. He is a husband, father, brother, friend, teacher, coach and son, but his journey turned when he become a care partner for his mother.  Today he will share his story and tell us about his book, "A Son's Handbook - Bringing Up Mom with Alzheimer's/Dementia."

A Son’s Handbook is the ten-year journey of a son as he cared for his mother with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Compelled by the love for his mother, author Stephen W. Hoag provides a tender, dramatic and often humorous account of the unforgettable years he shared with his mother as they faced the difficulties associated with her disease. His chronicled anecdotes and articulated moments will bring comfort to family members and care givers who must complete the daily tasks and overcome the obstacles accompanying the care of those afflicted with this illness.
