For anyone who is caring for someone with dementia, this book offers a bridge of hope and inspiration as Kate opens up and shares an important chapter of her life with her experience and her mom’s dementia. This book offers encouragement for caregivers to not give up on giving all they can to the one they love, even when the one they love doesn’t know who they are.
Written with candor, sensitivity, and a touch of humor, Kate shares her journey through the lens of her own pain watching her parents’ physical and mental health decline as she cares for her mom during the wildly unchartered, often lonely and unstable waters of dementia. When she starts to dig and explore into her parents love and history, Kate discovers a unique love language that her parents shared that she didn’t see as a child. Unlocked by mounds of daily poetry written on paper napkins from her father to her mom, Kate experiences the powerful yet invisible strength of the memories held in her mom’s soul and her dad’s love that proved itself immortal. Witnessing her mom’s memory surge through dementia in her final days of life provides the reader a reason to believe that love lives on eternally, never to be forgotten.
