** 2015 Finalist "Best Woman Writer" High Plains Book AwardsA refreshingly honest memoir, Vicki Tapia takes the reader along with her on a journey down the rabbit-hole of dementia. After her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and her father with Parkinson’s-related dementia during the same year, she became the nearest family caregiver. As a way to cope over the next several years of caregiving, Tapia kept a journal, which eventually morphed its way into this memoir.
Written in a conversational style, laced with humor and pathos, the author weaves lessons she learned, as well as her missteps along the way, into the meaningful narrative. She offers others caring for a loved one guidance and insight, as well as a reassurance they aren’t alone. This memoir is a must-read for anyone experiencing the countless emotional ups and downs associated with the caregiving role.
