A vital source of solace and compassion for those whose loved one has dementia, rooted in the author’s unflinching experience of caring for her mother

It helps readers tackle challenging trials, including dealing with feelings of grief, helplessness, guilt, and anger, while finding ways to not only forgive themselves but to develop a lasting sense of self-compassion.
