Why am I still engaged?
While earning my master's in gerontology, I read many interesting statistics and many solid evidenced-based scholarly articles on family caregivers in general and caring for people with dementia specifically.
However, the work of scientists and social scientists cannot fully capture the caregiving experience.
(A review copy was provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.)
I strongly believe that artists are better equipped to represent the caregiving experience.
I invite you to read Deborah Shouse's book Love in the Land of Dementia: Finding Hope in the Caregiver's Journey. (See my review on Goodreads.) Shouse brings her skill as an accomplished writer to the task. But more than that, Shouse brings her character: she's attentive, kind, perceptive and wise.
