Nana Doesn't Know Me
Donna M. Dube, author
What is a girl to do when all her plans for a perfect summer are changed overnight? Why does everyone around her exhibit such confusing behavior? My Name is Cally is a story about a girl, her parents, and her grandmother who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. It’s about a child’s upheaval, fear and confusion, and ultimately how the family comes together to care for their loved one with kindness, love, and dignity. Tenderly told from the first-person perspective of a child, by an experienced Alzheimer’s caregiver, Cally’s story aims to illustrate that Alzheimer’s affects not only the afflicted but the whole family, especially children—of all ages.
