Alzheimer’s Advocacy

My Mom, Jan, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when she was 56 years old and still working two jobs. I was 33 and became her full time caregiver. All plans and dreams of her future and my own halted, never to be obtained. Read my book, Alzheimer’s: Beyond Caregiving for a visual and poetic journey through 17 years of caregiving challenges, shame and grief.

Beyond Caregiving

"…this is like sitting down with a friend who knows what it’s like.” – Jodi Womack, author of Get Momentum.

Follow me on Instagram @AlzStories to continue seeing stories, sharing fears and encouragement among a tribe of caregivers who understand.

My ultimate hope for Alzheimer's: Beyond Caregiving is that it be available for free to any all caregivers of those with Alzheimer's Disease. If you wish to purchase 100 or more books at a discounted bulk rate and donate them to the Alzheimer's Association I will add a sticker to those specific books acknowledging your donation. They may include an "in memory of" or "dedicated to" if you so choose. Please contact me for more information at

Miki Klocke, the author of Alzheimer’s: Beyond Caregiving, is one of over 150 authors from around the world who will be represented at the Alzheimer’s Association - Western Carolina Chapter's Dementia Education conference in Charlotte, N.C., this August. Klocke and over 25 other AlzAuthors have donated copies of their books, which will be given away in a raffle to conference attendees. the press release here to find out more information
