Synopsis: BEGINS THE NIGHT MUSIC: A Dementia Caregiver's Journal “I forgot how to use the microwave,” said Emma one evening in 2005. Emma was beautiful, petite and feminine, loved travel, entertaining and humor. Multi-talented, she played the piano and electronic organ and was an accomplished watercolorist. She raised toy poodles, one of them becoming a champion. She loved hosting dinner parties and long weekends for family and friends at her beachfront home in Southern New Jersey. Her friends raved about these events until their dying days. Then Emma was diagnosed with dementia. She was 90. She needed help. There was no one but me. I felt the floor of my chest open and my heart plunge into my stomach. My lifestyle and the self I knew ceased to exist thenceforth. Thus began my mother’s and my decade-long trek through dark tunnels and along half-lit paths. I stumbled often. Emma simply fell: I ran and got neighbors to help pick her up. I, the unpaid sole caregiver, often found no response of help from state and healthcare agencies. There were days when I told healthcare aides to leave and never come back, days when the aides left Emma alone for hours without telling me. Only near the end did we find the extraordinary support team we needed. For me the experience was spiritually life changing. This is the story of our long journey, Volume One. ~Frustration, tears and laughter combine with recipes, humorous essays, magazine stories, and photos. —Samantha Mozart A Salmon Salad and Mozart Book, Volume I
