"Being My Mom's Mom" invites readers on my personal journey before and after the onset of my Mom's dementia. Personal vignettes highlight the heartache and humor in this life-changing disease. I offer strategies from real experience for building the best care team for loved ones, increasing one's capacity for patience, and making the most of every day. I confirm the difficulty of acknowledging when it's time to become the "parent of a parent". I also offer hope that loving relationships with dementia sufferers can continue, even in the realization that the past is forgotten, and the future is the present.
