Abstract:

The story of a family helping their mother to face dementia and learning to love each other again in the process.

When the vibrant, beloved Miss Peggy began the agonizing descent into the darkness of dementia, her family faced with questions no one can answer. Benson takes an intimate look at what dementia means for a family: how do you organize your mother's new life, how do you move her from her cherished home, how do you come to terms with the fact that a person you love is in a decline from reality.
