Special Order


What happens when a lifelong caregiver needs caring for?
As Baby Boomers become elders, this heart-wrenching question is one that many North American families are grappling with every day. This timely volume is part memoir, part roadmap, written by a daughter thrust into a role as her headstrong mother Marguerite's decision maker, advocate, and aide when the latter is diagnosed with dementia. Mom, Twice a Child is an emotionally honest look at the ups and downs of caregiving and its inevitable toll on helpers. It is a loving and intimate portrait of Marguerite's life, engaging for any caregiver who understands that this insidious disease, no matter how debilitating, cannot rob a family of their past.
