Santa Fe, New Mexico based health planning consultant, Anne Hays Egan, has announced the launch of her new book, Moving Mama: Taking Care of Mother During her Final Years with Alzheimer's. The book is listed at Amazon.com and can be found in the self-help genre, under “aging,” “Alzheimer’s” and “caring for parents with Alzheimer’s.” Based on a true story, readers and reviewers have called Moving Mama “a page turner,” and something “that I just couldn’t put down.” The book promises to be an engaging experience, taking its readers on a journey filled with love, grief, compassion and spiritual awakenings. Written in a wry style, the book is real, and shies away from the maudlin and trite that one too often finds in this genre.
Published by New Ventures Consulting, the 200 page book, "Moving Mama" is available in both paperback and ebook formats. The paperback is $11.99 on Amazon and will be available at the following URL: http://bit.ly/MovingMama or Createspace (www.createspace.com), and the Kindle version will also be available for $4.99 on Amazon.com. Readers can go to the book website for easy ordering options: www.movingmama.net.
The author explains: “Moving Mama is a practical resource for people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease. The book tells about our family's experiences caring for our mother as she struggled with dementia. Each chapter includes stories focused on a theme, and ends with tips, tools and resources to help the reader deal with similar issues. There is a resource section at the end of the book that identifies some of the most frequently needed services, how to reach them, and how to begin planning for caregiving.”
Readers and reviewers have called this book something that “at its core, speaks of hope, despite all of the challenges that Alzheimer’s presents.” Written with a light touch and a wry sense of humor, people have called the book "engaging, moving and informative;" "a compelling story that touched me deeply and personally;" and "something I can’t put down!" Moving Mama has been called "wonderful, very insightful, honest and helpful."
In her article “Older Adult Demographics That Will Rock Your World,” the author explains why caring for older adults is such an important issue right now:
“Research shows that older adults are the fastest growing demographic group in the U.S., and those aged 80 and older are the fastest growing group within the elderly age cohort. Elder care is one of the biggest challenges facing baby boomers and those in their middle years, with an anticipated cumulative cost of over $3 trillion dollars in the coming years. Costs of caregiving are expected to present huge financial burdens to a significant portion of the population.”
Egan, a well known community and health planning consultant, explains that individuals, families and communities need to understand that people caring for elderly parents, spouses and other loved ones need information, resources, help and support to respond to the needs of the frail elderly.
Egan explains that there are a lot of challenges involved in caregiving. “Families must realize that, for the most part, they're not prepared. Having faced the same issues myself, I know that no family could ever be fully prepared. However, reading and talking with others, and sitting down to discuss issues with your elderly loved ones before things become critical can make things easier down the road. Moving Mama is aimed at providing people with stories that make for wonderful reading, along with a lot of tips, tools and resources.”
What topics does the book cover?
- Wills, Living Wills and Health Care Powers of Attorney - Driving and the Drivers’ License Renewal - Identifying Caregiving Needs - Handling the Increasing Needs for Support at Home - Protecting and Managing Finances - Dealing with a Slipping Memory - Handling Nutrition and Personal Care - Managing Sundowner’s Syndrome - Selling the House - Caring for Ourselves – Mindfulness and Self Care - And Many Other Topics Most of Us Face
The author comments on the journey most of us will face caring for an elderly loved one: “We all are destined to become more frail as we age, often needing assistance. And, unfortunately, many people develop Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia as they become older and more frail. Families must prepare themselves to provide care to their elderly. I feel fortunate to be able to share both my personal experience and my expertise as a health planning consultant in this book. I sincerely hope it will help others facing similar situations to find a few answers, and tap into their own reservoir of strength."
The book doles out an incredibly realistic story of desperation and redemption, grief and survival, and love, hope and healing. Moving Mama is a story about experiences that have the potential to change lives. Thousands of families facing similar situations can benefit from the helpful insights of how the author and her family prepared and dealt with her mother during her final years with Alzheimer’s.
The author's uncanny ability to touch the commonly shared human experiences and reach deep into the heart is part of what makes this book unique, and well worth your time.

Creative writing professor Robert Hammond has announced the launch of his latest book, Transformed by Writing: How to Change Your Life and Change the World with the Power of Story on Amazon.com at the following URL: http://bit.ly/TransformedByWriting
Online PR India's insight:
Creative writing professor Robert Hammond works tirelessly to provide a platform that allows people to share their stories – tragic, inspirational or thought-provoking –and one way he is doing this is through his latest book, "Transformed by Writing: How to Change Your Life and Change the World with the Power of Story." The book can be bought from Amazon.com's online store from the following URL: http://bit.ly/TransformedByWriting
The bestselling author, producer and award-winning screenwriter has had first-hand experience in positively bringing stories to life, with his own life story serving as a catalyst for this project. After spending years in and out of jails and rehabs while battling drug addiction, Hammond was sentenced in Riverside County Superior Court Oct. 30, 1997 for selling or furnishing a controlled substance (marijuana) and possession of a firearm. He served 11 months in prison and a year of parole before being discharged on Christmas Day in 1999. After what he calls "seeing the Light," Hammond transformed his life, committed himself to public service, and received a full pardon from Cal. Gov. Jerry Brown on Easter 2013.
Hammond's book release couldn't have come at a better time – it's in line with recent headline-grabbing event that serves to demonstrate how the simple act of telling stories has the power to heal and save lives. Everybody has a story to tell, and no matter how insignificant people think their stories may be, honesty is the best policy. It's true-life struggles and tiny victories that come with those struggles that make the best stories – harnessing the true, life-altering power of a story.
Antoinette Tuff, a front office worker at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy, serves to demonstrate the most basic of human instincts yearning to come forth. Her story and the burning desire to tell it had to be found under the most trying of all circumstances – a gunman breaking into the school to kill and her persuading him to call off the attack and turn himself in. The following video on YouTube also showcases the book's subject aptly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KduaXNmEjGk
How was Tuff able to do it? She did it through the power of story – narrating her struggles in life to the gunman, sharing the experiences and emotions that he could actually relate to. "Transformed by Writing: How to Change Your Life and Change the World with the Power of Story" is definitely a must-read for anyone looking to learn something about themselves – something they might not have known and indeed those who want to be transformed by writing and change their lives and the world with the power of story.
It's true that positive and enlightening news is difficult to come by lately – especially with news headlines riddled with negative, deeply disturbing and sad news. Although it's probably accurate, the media paints a bleak picture of sad stories people have to share. Hammond, on the other hand, is trying to turn the negative stories into something positive.
The inspirational author recently talked about his new book and said, "Perhaps your desire is to leave a lasting legacy for your friends and family or you simply feel the need to share your personal testimony or message with the world".
Whatever the reason, there is no better way to share one's experiences and communicate the innermost feelings than doing it through the power of story. As poet Maya Angelou says, "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." After all, the deepest and most lasting memories are made through sharing stories. "What's your story?"
About Robert Hammond: Robert Hammond, a bestselling author, producer and award-winning screenwriter, holds an MFA in Creative Writing. Hammond has enjoyed a significant amount of success through many of his published books, and is currently seeking to maintain the same high standards with his newest book, "Transformed by Writing: How to Change Your Life and Change the World with the Power of Story." The literary consultant and college professor develops projects for television and film, including the forthcoming Cecil B. DeMille biopic based on his novel. Hammond's previous books include The Light and Ready When You Are: Cecil B. DeMille's Ten Commandments for Success and he is often featured as a talk show host on personal transformation, creativity and Hollywood history. Hammond's ultimate mission is to help others discover their inner light, giving them a platform to share their stories with the world.
