We Need Your Help!

The Second Edition of Coach’s Playbook is almost ready for production and we need your support to make it happen!

What is the Playbook?

In 2004, Coach Frank Broyles lost his wife of 50+ years, Barbara, to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease. Shortly thereafter, Coach Broyles decided he wanted to help caregivers better understand how to care for someone living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. He asked his daughters, Betsy and Linda, who were Barbara’s primary caregivers alongside Coach, to write down everything they could remember on how they took care of Barbara. Working with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and Golden Living, 100,000 copies of Coach Broyles’ Playbook for Alzheimer’s Caregivers were distributed free-of-charge through pharmacies all over the state of Arkansas. Thus, the Broyles Foundation had been established. From there, it would not take long for the Playbook to go national. In 2007, Coach Broyles raised the funds to print another 500,000 copies to distribute all over the country.

In 2009, Coach Broyles again raised the necessary funds to print an additional 500,000 copies of the Playbook in English, with an additional 100,000 in Spanish. The Playbook was also translated into 11 languages in an electronic format for people all around the World. The Broyles Foundation asks for $10 per Playbook on our website to cover shipping and handling, but provides caregivers in crisis with copies of the Playbook and support services for free.

Why a Second Edition?

It has been 13 years since the Playbook was first published, and dementia caregiving continues to evolve as medical science and social services develop new treatment and support plans. The Broyles Foundation has grown as well, and we want to put the experiences and lessons of the past decade to work for our caregivers across the country.

With over 1 million copies distributed in 11 different languages, Coach Broyles’ Playbook for Alzheimer’s Caregivers is the best source of information for caregivers fighting against Alzheimer’s Disease. This update will provide millions of caregivers in crisis up-to-date support.
