The journey through Alzheimer's disease and other dementia-causing disorders is frightening and confusing, and can leave even caregivers at a loss of words. These simple poems, most in the style of haiku and tanka, express the bitter and the sweet of caring for a beloved suffering from dementia.About the Author:
Linda Austin wrote and published her mother's memoir of growing up in Japan around WWII and became a fan of lifewriting. Her mother now suffers from Alzheimer's, but she enjoys listening to stories and songs of her childhood. Linda encourages others via her Moonbridgebooks.com website to write their stories or that of their elders as legacy gifts for their families. She believes poetry can be a form of lifewriting, too.
