The relationships of mother and daughter, and husband and wife are the primary focus of this moving account of a family's experience with dementia. When the last of their four children leaves home, Vivienne and her husband anticipate a new stage of independence, but her mother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease necessitates a radical change of plans. The progression of the disease, grieving over the gradual loss of her beloved mother, and the enduring love between her parents are recounted with lyrical tenderness and searing honesty. Vivienne’s father must now care for his wife, the woman whose support was so crucial to his own rise from farm boy to confidante of prime ministers. Family history and the ironic role reversal of the parents give this sandwich generation story an immediacy that lingers. This memoir depicts illness, grief, and hardship in abundance with equal measures of love, determination, and joy.

Book Description Scribe Publications, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. When Vivienne Ulman's youngest child left home, she and her husband were poised to enjoy their freedom. Then her mother's Alzheimer's intervened. In Alzheimer's: a love story, Vivienne records with tender lyricism and searing honesty the progress of her mother's Alzheimer's, her own grief over the gradual loss of her beloved mother, and the way in which her parents' enduring love for each other sustains them. Into this she weaves an account of her family's history, in particular her father's rise from farm boy to confidant of prime ministers - achievements made possible by the loving strength of the woman by his side. In a reversal of roles, he now amply returns this support. This inspiring Australian story is a tale for the sandwich generation, squeezed on one side by concerns for their children and on the other by anxiety about their parents. It is about illness, grief, and hardship, but it is also about love, determination, and joy. Paperback. Seller Inventory # MM-40001155
