I wish Searching for Cecy could somehow be mandatory reading for all carepartners. It is impossible not to feel the salty Maine waves blow across your cheek as you read and re-read Judy s compassionate poetry. Joanne Koenig-Coste, author, Learning To Speak Alzheimer s --Joanne Koenig-Coste

Searching For Cecy is a thoughtful read, very much recommended.   Midwest Book Review --Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback
Alzheimer's is a traumatizing experience for the entire family. Watching a loved one lose their way, forget who they are and even who you are is unbelievably painful. Yet, there are moments of clarity. Moments of hilarity and times when the love of a family can transcend the day to day difficulties. Judy and her family have been able to take these moments and, using their exceptionally creative talents, create a beautiful book of art and poetry that inspires, comforts, provides insight, understanding and support to those whose lives are touched by this tragic disease. A great resource for anyone working in the field and all families facing the diagnosis of Alzheimer's.

Anyone who has ever lived with a loved one experiencing dementia and/or Alzheimer's has a friend in this amazing book. Judy Prescott has an insight that is at once loving, tragic and oddly comforting. Her talent for putting such emotion into this reflective poetry is brilliant.
My favorite of these poems is "Proof."
"She disappears before me, silently slipping into a realm in which I don't figure....."
Profound!!!
A must have for anyone living in this nightmare of a disease.

Format: Paperback
I work with dementia clients, this book truly speaks from the heart. Judy is sharing with us her travel/journey with her mother. It can be very difficult and painful to put into words what happens when you travel with someone who has Alzheimer's. I truly love the way Judy has found to reconnect with her mother I know that it has not been easy for her. Not everyone is willing to share this journey because it is so often to painful to loose a connection to the ones you love. The connection is not always visible but it is there. You just have to believe in it.

Such a touching read filled with palpable emotion. The author trustingly exposes her heart and soul to show the true struggle between heart and head. This book shows the love of a daughter for a mother she can not yet mourn. Although far off in her mind, I'm certain that her mother will be proud.

This book belongs not only in the homes of families and friends of those with Alzheimer's, or any other dreadful drawn-out ailment, but also in waiting rooms of Alzheimer's residences. In that belief, we are donating copies to local homes and to the library of our regional office of Alzheimer's Association.

The poems and the appropriate artwork alongside them will provide deeper understanding and so much comfort again and again. The poems, such expressive vignettes, were written over a course of 8 years and are works of art; and the variety of artworks by several of the poet's family are poetic. Poetry and art: an inspired and inspiring combination.
