‘Fading From Memory’ is a son’s personal journal covering the period 2006-2009, during which his parents are first diagnosed with, and eventually succumb to, Alzheimer’s disease. The journal follows the family’s responses to the progressively more desperate needs of their parents with humour, insight, compassion, exasperation, enterprise and, finally, resignation. This book paints a raw, honest, but at times also heartwarming, picture of what really happens when Alzheimer’s strikes - twice.
