Ms. Lahman captures, with intimate detail, the multifaceted – and widely disparate - relationships that one care-taking individual manages with the people in her life: her spouse, whose love provides a steadying force and calm perspective while he ponders his own future; her grandmother, whose dizzying descent from Alzheimer’s catapults her from competent, to confused, to content; her guilt-inducing mother, with whom Shelly has more in common than she wants to admit; and her brother, whose friction-filled life explodes with anger toward anyone in his path.
A must-read for anyone whose life has been impacted by Alzheimer’s, whose family is laced with dysfunction, and who still finds their “self” in the midst of all that life serves up.
By Lynda Lahman
Lahman’s new book is about Alzheimer’s. It deserves a place on everyone’s shelf.
Too many of us unfortunately know someone suffering from a form of dementia.
We only talk tangentially about the loved ones who steward the needs of those who have fallen prey to one of these diseases. In Love, Loss and Memories, Lehman artfully tells a story of a family member’s journey in caretaking: their frustrations, sage like conduct, humor, mistakes and love.
How ill equipped one is when one begins this odyssey.

A joy to read and ponder over. I have passed it on to my sister to read
