Approximately six million people now have some form of dementia in North America, and they each have an average of five care partners. This group is growing each year and will continue to grow until a cure is found. There are books that are very clinical and books that are fictional, but this book provides clinical information in lay terms within a true story of how this dementia can affect not just the person with the disease but everyone around them. The author’s gentle humour offers the reader moments of lightness in what could be a very dark read. Anyone can read and learn from this warm, practical and all-encompassing book on dementia.
Lee Cardwell is a wife, mother, grandmother, and daughter who spent several years caring for her mother as she slipped into Alzheimer's disease. Then, just after the long struggle with her mother ended, her husband was diagnosed with vascular dementia. Lee's battle began again, this time with different struggles and opportunities. She is well equipped to tell this personal story through her years of investigating and learning about the disease firsthand. Lee, a Toastmaster for over 20 years, has spoken many times at Toastmaster contests and public events about her battle with dementia. She organized her own "WOW Wednesday" event to raise funds to support the Alzheimer's Society, and spoke at the Motivational Mondays event held in Edmonton on the topic of dementia.
