From the earliest indicators and faint forebodings to the eventual grim diagnosis, Deborah Shouse carries readers along on the difficult -- and at times joyous -- road she and her parents walked through the Land of Dementia -- Alzheimer's disease. She shares the challenges she faced during the process of caring for both parents as her mother slowly vanished, to be replaced by a difficult but surprisingly no less valued and beloved stranger. In addition to its spiritual message, Love in the Land of Dementia includes practical suggestions and support for caregivers and other family members.
