For many families, a diagnosis of dementia is an ending. For Deborah Shouse, it was a beginning, "My mother taught me how to celebrate and appreciate what we have right now." Through her mother's dementia, Deborah discovered compassion, deepening love, and increased connection with her mother and her family. Love in the Land of Dementia offers hope to family members, friends, and care partners of people who are living with memory loss. Strong, fluid organization and tender writing distinguish this purposeful and compelling read, which is filled with practical suggestions, compassionate support, and unexpected insights.
