Ten Thousand Joys & Ten Thousand Sorrows A Couple's Journey Through Alzheimer's, by Olivia Ames Hoblitzelle

This compelling memoir provides unique perspectives on living with Alzheimer’s. Hob and Olivia Hoblitzelle, with their shared background in psychology and meditation, were determined to approach his illness consciously – to see it as an opportunity for growth and deepening in love.  Remarkably, they were able to bring a unique combination of wisdom and humor to one of life’s greatest challenges.

Filled with practical guidance and spiritual perspectives, Ten Thousand Joys & Ten Thousand Sorrows offers an inspiring vision for maintaining hope and grace in the face of long-term illness.

His Holiness, The Dalai Lama
