A free guided writing seminar for caregivers.
Before you began this dementia journey with your loved one, could you have even imagined how your life and relationships would change? The tenderness. The pain. The anxiety. The sense of purpose. The loss of identity. The love. Your story is an important one.
Annette Januzzi Wick calls I’ll Have Some of Yours her how-not-to caregiving book.
In her a collection of essays, she shares the mistakes made along the way while trying finding the perfect care home for her mother, who is slipping further into dementia.
The task isn’t simple. Her father dies in the midst of her parents’ transition to Cincinnati. And her mother presents some challenges—like hitting another resident, yelling at an Elvis impersonator, berating her daughter for the thingy’s in her hair.
