Alzheimer's: A Love Story

Author(s): Vivienne Ulman

Growing Older

When Vivienne Ulman's youngest child left home, she and her husband were poised to enjoy their freedom. Then her mother's Alzheimer's intervened. In Alzheimer's: A Love Story, Vivienne records with tender lyricism and searing honesty the progress of her mother's Alzheimer's, her own grief over the gradual loss of her beloved mother, and the way in which her parents' enduring love for each other sustains them. Into this she weaves an account of her family's history, in particular her father's rise from farm boy to confidant of prime ministers - achievements made possible by the loving strength of the woman by his side. In a reversal of roles, he now amply returns this support. This inspiring Australian story is a tale for the sandwich generation, squeezed on one side by concerns for their children and on the other by anxiety about their parents. It is about illness, grief, and hardship, but it is also about love, determination, and joy.
