    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.

    1419: A Love Story

    Annette Januzzi Wick and Mark Manley call their once-abandoned 1875 Italianate-style townhome at 1419 Race Street their love child. The couple both lost their first spouses to cancer. Years later, they married and blended families and possessions, but never a home, until they purchased one in Over-the-Rhine in 2012. They planted themselves in the neighborhood through community council and non-profit engagement, walking the streets at night and at dawn and in writing, to connect, learn and grow.

    In 1875, Charles Mueller built a home on 1419 Race Street and ran his apothecary out of what is now Nellie’s Tavern at Taft’s Ale House. Charles and his wife, Katherine, had six children, all of whom led diverse lives, though some met with unhappy and morbid endings. In 2018, descendants of Charles and his wife found their way to 1419 Race Street—as guests—and left behind a piece of history.

    Annette and Mark will share how they fell for the neighborhood and were later “adopted” by this family of descendants.

"In the midst of my mother asking, she forgot her flow of words. “Oh damn it. Sometimes I think I have that disease...What do they call it?” I knew what they called it. But, like the rest of my family, I refused to name it." #dementia #Alzheimers https://t.co/J4mvECRStD
