Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Return Journey is truly the authors travels into the world of Alzheimers. Drawing on her correspondence and conversations with other caregivers, Petrovski provides a unique look at the environment of Alzheimers—the afflicted, the affected, the afterthoughts. In the end, she talks of the true survivors left behind to deal with the disease's aftermath—the caregivers. Petrovski describes how caregivers traverse the successes and failures of their journey until they eventually find the best route on the rocky path of helping human beings in the throes of diminishing selfhood. Offering caregivers hope, support, and a sense of oneness, A Return Journey demonstrates that as painful as it is to watch a loved one vanish bit by bit, there is grace and wisdom to be found on the way.
