My Mother Is Losing Her memory And I Am Losing My Mind
Kathleen Bjork, author
My Mother is Losing Her Memory, and I Am Losing My Mind is the true story of a mother’s journey through dementia told through the eyes of her caregiver daughter. Related with compassion and humor, it details the mother’s fight to keep her independence and the family’s decisions to keep her safe. Loss of control of her finances as well as her car is met with anger, and a fall which results in a broken hip and rehabilitation confirms that she cannot live alone. A concession to let her return to live in her own home with a caregiver results in disaster.
