Love In The Land Of Dementia

From the earliest indicators and faint forebodings to the eventual grim diagnosis, Deborah Shouse talks about the difficult—and at times joyous—road she and her parents walked through the Land of Dementia—Alzheimer's disease.

She shares the challenges she faced during the process of caring for both parents as her mother slowly vanished, to be replaced by a difficult but surprisingly no less valued and beloved stranger. Strong, fluid organization and tender writing distinguish this purposeful and compelling conversation on a heartbreaking subject filled with unexpected insights.
