A DAUGHTER’S JOURNEY INTO THE WORLD OF DEMENTIA.
With many baby boomers trying to cope with ageing parents suffering memory loss and other symptoms of dementia, My Way, is a timely book from a young Christian woman’s perspective.
“I looked at this man whom I had loved, admired and indeed feared all my life, and I felt such pain and grief for him. He could not fathom in his addled mind, that this was going to be his new life now. Thoughts of guilt, regret, pain…. all wrapped up into this moment, and I had to be the one to tell him, ‘this is your new home now Dad.’” –excerpt from My Way.
With candid honesty, emotional depth, topped with moments of humour, the author shares her true story of how she had to handle a parent slipping into dementia plus she adds useful information for readers facing a similar dilemma.
“It is very seldom that I ever read a book twice. But I did with My Way. The author has a way of drawing you into her journey. You do not need to know anyone who has dementia to enjoy reading this well-written book.” Ray Curle
