Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Dementia is a condition that affects millions of senior citizens — and the number of people afflicted is increasing annually. In this compelling memoir, Stettinius shares the struggles she faces when her mother, Judy, is diagnosed with dementia. Stettinius chronicles Judy's story, from the near-invisible early signs of the affliction to the struggles over elder care, assisted living, rehabilitation, and finally a nursing home. Readers will sympathize with the author's plight — and that of her mother — as Stettinius learns more about dementia and how little support exists for people suffering from the condition or people caring for an afflicted family member. Stettinius ably illustrates the challenges she faces and shares wisdom and advice she's learned along the way. While the story has no real conclusion — Stettinius's mother continues to deteriorate — the book offers a wealth of resources for readers dealing with dementia."
