Dancing with Rose: Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimer’s by Lauren Kessler

Find in catalogI really enjoyed this book. The author writes about her experience working as a minimum wage caregiver at a facility in Oregon for people who have Alzheimer’s. She started her job a few years after her mom died of Alzheimer’s. She did this in order to better understand the disease. She sheds light on what it’s like to be a caregiver, the family members of the residents, and the people there who have different stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about Alzheimer’s.
