Shades of Dementia


It’s easy to dismiss early slips of aging parents when a name, conversation or place simply goes missing.  They’re just getting old we tell ourselves.  Just getting old.

But it persists, expands and grows worrisome.  When denial is no longer an option, we are forced to seek answers to questions we don’t wan to ask them or ourselves.

And finally, it’s confirmed and there’s no going back, a caregiving moment of truth requiring patience and acceptance for what we cannot change but vow to hold together with love and devotion.

I wish my parent’s doctors would read this book! Everyone who deals with those over 70 should read it. We teach early childhood education, but why is there no education in how to deal with those in the last part of their lives, so they feel respected. This guy is great.
