From the Publisher

‘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. The author exhibits a deep and natural curiosity about what is happening to his parents' minds, how they came to be as they are, what steps can be taken to alleviate their troubles, and what choices the family has available. As fast as problems come at them, the family put up solutions, until eventually they can do no more. Throughout this very testing time, suffered by all the family, the author's humour enables him, and the reader, to step back and take stock, refresh the spirit, and return to the battle renewed.
