About The Geography of Memory

These posts will take a hard look at what occurred in one family when its matriarch veered into Alzheimer’s--including the humor and the surprises.  If you are worried about Alzheimer’s, this blog offers information and suggestions.  If you care for someone with senior dementia, it will suggest a way to read the garbled messages.  If you’re looking for a true, fierce and loving family story, tune in.  News on the street about Alzheimer’s is distorted and terrifying right now.  Putting the disease in context can calm some of our terror.
