5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely readable account of caring for a mother with dementia, 15 Sept. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Girl in the Radiator, The (Paperback)
Martin has provided an extremely interesting account of his experiences of caring for his mother. Very readable book which can help improve awareness and understanding of this illness. He should be proud of his efforts in looking after Rose over a number of years. There is a nice balance between poignant and humorous moments, whilst at the same time some useful advice is also provided. Definitely worth reading if anyone is at the start of the journey for caring for someone with this illness or reaching the point where a suitable care home may need to be found. For me, it was interesting to 'compare notes'. Many similarities with my mother (also a seamstress and passed away at same age,1926-2008). It was also a relief to read that I wasn't the only son forced to lock his mother in the house for fear of her wandering off and getting lost.
If the author of this excellent book reads this review, you may like to read my book, Dementia and Mum-Who Really Cares? by Michael Fassio. I'm sure you will find it interesting that in different part of the country we were going through such similar emotions and facing similar challenges at more or less the same time. If you are ever in London, we should meet up for a drink. My email address is michaelfassio@hotmail.co.uk
Good luck for the future and thanks for sharing your moving,funny and heart-warming story.
