Parenting My Father: A Journey with Dementia lovingly depicts the profound effect of a fathers severe memory loss on the daughter who helped care for him. Told with sensitivity and humor, the author shares intimate details of this journey, starting with the early warning signs that were more serious than age-related forgetfulness. During Mil Hallenbecks slow mental and physical retreat from life, his daughter discovers papers in his attic that gave insight into his ancestry and exceptional writing ability. These personal reminiscences plus medical information on Alzheimers disease provided by grandson David make this book not only interesting but helpful for any family affected by dementia.
