Ten Thousand Joys & Ten Thousand Sorrows: A Couple's Journey Through Alzheimer's follows the journey of Olivia and her husband Harrison's Hob's diagnosis and ultimate decline from Alzheimer's disease. Infused with the wisdom from a shared psychology background, as well as from years of Buddhist practice and study Hob was an ordained senior teacher by Thich Nhat Hanh, Olivia's powerful account provides both spiritual and practical approaches to anyone dealing with caregiving issues, and mental loss or diminishment of any kind. Endorsed by His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, he says: "Many themes run through this story. One is the powerful role that Olivia and Hob's love and affection plays in their coping with the challenge of Hob's Alzheimer's. Another is the importance of the acceptance of suffering. There is not much we can do about aging or Alzheimer's, but, as Hoblitzelle reveals here, accepting the condition in which we find ourselves can be a far more positive approach in the long run."
