Author Elizabeth Tierney
Elizabeth lives in a small town in Western Massachusetts. The book, however, has been published by Oak Tree Press in Ireland, where the author once lived with her late husband, Jim.
"Dignifying Dementia" is a love story that will may make you laugh and is almost sure to make you cry. It will also make the reader experience a wide range of emotions.
It is a story about the author's caring for her husband for nine long and often tumultuous years after he was diagnosed with dementia.
You will read about her struggles with the medical profession and empathize with her disappointment, frustration, heartbreak, and, finally, acceptance as she sees the love of her life lose his grip on life.
Elizabeth and her husband were both life-long educators. They traveled, loved books, meeting people, and living life to the fullest. Then it all began to unravel as her beloved husband slipped into the clutches of a devastating disease.
Elizabeth is a genuine, down-to-earth lady, in the truest sense. She had to rebuild her life after her husband's death. It is never easy to lose one's life partner and go on, alone, in life. She is doing this, too, with dignity.
"Dignifying Dementia" is a powerful book. It makes a person want to grab on to every second of life and savor it.
When you finish it, you will have deep admiration and respect for the author while you hope you never have to walk where she was walked. But one just never knows.
Dignifying Dementia also has a website. It's http://dignifyingdementia.com/ It includes book ordering information.
