Love in the Land of Dementia:
Love in the Land of Dementia: Finding Hope in the Caregiver’s Journey by Deborah Shouse is the true story of one woman’s connection to her mother. Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Deborah’s mother gradually lost the ability to recognize or remember her daughter, yet even in the twilight Deborah learned the joy of compassion, deepened bonds, and connection with her mother and her family. Love in the Land of Dementia is a true story of coping with loss, grief, guilt, and shame, as well as the wonder of making new discoveries and the compassion and grace of caring for a loved one in their final years. A poignant and heartfelt personal testimony.
