 About the Book 

When my mother was diagnosed with dementia, my life changed for the better!My life became richer, more complete and filled with joy as I watched the triumph of my mothers spirit. Dementia may have affected her physically but it could not touch herMoreWhen my mother was diagnosed with dementia, my life changed for the better!My life became richer, more complete and filled with joy as I watched the triumph of my mothers spirit. Dementia may have affected her physically but it could not touch her beautiful spirit. What is eternal about our life is not our physical experience but our spiritual essence and therefore the depth of our relationship grew into something more than I ever could have imagined.Life with someone who has Alzheimers and dementia can be a celebration and an important time. This disease will either be a source of suffering or a source of joy depending on whether we connect with our spirit and the spirit of those around us. It is our choice. Be empowered to live life as a celebration of joy and connectedness by understanding that this moment is the only one we have and that happiness and compassion are only a moment of choice away.People with Alzheimers and dementia can thrive and have a wonderful quality of life when we believe in this possibility, recognize their spiritual energy and give them the opportunity to live their lives in an environment that is nurturing and responsive to their needs. This book will help the reader begin to rethink what is possible for their loved one and for their own life.Note: Alzheimers is one of the many dementias which also include Lewy Body, Multi-Infarct, Frontotemporal, and Parkinsons. While my mother had Frontotemporal dementia, the title of this book was chosen in the hopes that it would facilitate a higher visibility and therefore touch the most lives possible of the loved ones that are going through this experience....a fresh and compassionate insight into the care of persons with Alzheimers and the life-affirming role caregivers can play.Kay Redington |CEO| Alzheimers Association, Central & North Florida Chapter
