It is always challenging to watch a loved one grow older and face new, confusing obstacles that always seemed easy. Does Grandma Remember Me? shows how love transcends age and difficulties, even when things become overwhelming.
‘Does Grandma Remember Me?’ is a noteworthy work of educating children about the Dementia illness and its effect on elderly people. The author brings out very well the love and bond between Angel, the little girl, and her grandma while her grandma was still well and healthy. When the early signs of forgetfulness and resultant frustration set in Angel’s grandma, Angel becomes sad. The knowledge about her grandma being sick with Dementia helps Angel understand the situation better. Angel is no longer sad because of her grandma not recognising her as she finds there are plenty of ways in which she can continue showing her love.
This is a book which deals with creating awareness about Dementia among young children that what may look like confusion when their grandparents begin forgetting their name or do not remember who they are, it doesn’t mean they have changed or the love which they shared together has changed. Love always remains the same.
I recommend this book to the parents, caregivers and teachers.
Meet the Author:
Evita’s passion is assisting the elderly, especially those living with dementia. Her mission is to help people age in the manner they envision for themselves and not through the lens of others. She works to provide data and resources to assist elders in effectively aging-in-place and equips their families and friends to support their loved ones amidst uncertainty. Working in the elder care field as a licensed nursing home administrator, senior living marketing professional, and Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), Evita witnesses both elders and families make tough decisions. Some of those decisions result in despair, while others result in healing. The key to enabling elders to live life to its fullest is to help them find their voices and exercise their right to choose.
Evita collaborates with family and friends to ensure that her mother, who lives with dementia, and her father, recently diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, maintain their voices and make well-informed choices as their disease progresses.
