I found the book by Heather Menzies. It is called Enter Mourning – A Memoir of Death, Dementia and Coming Home
Still Alice by educates us from the “victim” point of view; Enter Mourning educates us from a caregiver, in this case a daughter, point of view. The books are complementary.
I found them immensely helpful in my understanding of dementia, as I have watched my mother lose her cognitive function and independence. Of course everyone’s journey will be somewhat different and the pace of change variable, but there are many similarities, if one does not get hung up on absolutes.
