Show your mother, grandmother, wife, or mother-in-law how much you appreciate her. She’ll love these 101 personal, heartwarming, sometimes hilarious anecdotes about all the adventures of motherhood and how kids eventually realize that simple truth: Mom Knows Best.
A care facility is everyone's solution for what to do about Sara, but her husband, Jack, can't bear to live without her. He is committed to saving his marriage, his wife, and their life together from the devastation of Alzheimer’s disease. He and Sara retired years ago to the house of their dreams, and operated it as a Cape Cod bed and breakfast named Blue Hydrangeas. Jack has made an impossible promise: He and Sara will stay together in their beautiful home no matter what the disease brings.
A Heartbreaking Choice
However, after nine years of selfless caregiving, complicated by her progressing Alzheimer’s and his own failing heart, he finally admits he can no longer care for her at home. With reluctance, he arranges to admit her to an assisted living facility.
But, on the morning of admission, Sara is having one of her few good days, and he is unable to follow through. Instead, he takes them on an impulsive journey to confront their past and reclaim their future.
In the end, he realizes that staying together at any cost is what truly matters.

It is because of this that Before the Diagnosis: More Stories of Life and Love Before Dementia was written. Continuing in the style of Before the Diagnosis: Stories of Life and Love Before Dementia, the stories of the 23 individuals in this book introduce us to more people with a life worth remembering.
In the pages of this book, some of the people you’ll meet are a well-loved teacher, a shop owner, a good gift-giver, cyclists, parents, spouses, an acupuncturist, a family physician, a marathoner, and an artistic storyteller.
Two women who were both young when they were diagnosed with a type of dementia wrote positively about their lives since their diagnoses, with their first-hand accounts bookending the other essays.
We all need to remember that people with any type of diagnosis, whether it is a form of dementia or something else entirely, are so much more than their diagnosis. They are people. Remind people they are so much more than a medical condition. Find out about people. Share their story, and share yours as well.
I hope you are touched by what you read on the pages of this book.
