Artwork by Rita Loyd on CARE ADVANTAGE magazine cover

Cover of Care Advantage magazine, winter issue 2012 http://www.afacareadvantage.org

My art has appeared on over eighty magazine covers but this is my proudest cover because the artwork was inspired by my love for my precious mother who now suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.  This magazine is free to caregivers and you can order it on their website or read it on their website. http://www.afacareadvantage.org This organization also has a “hotline” for care givers and you can  ask questions about this disease. 866-AFA-8484. Its important to find plenty of support as a patient or a caregiver because this is an overwhelming disease for all involved. Also find a good doctor who respects the slowing metabolism of the elderly and who will not overmedicate. In Huntsville, AL my mothers doctor is Dr. Khan.
