Walking One Another Home
Real-life stories in Walking One Another Home: Moments of Grace and Possibility in the Midst of Alzheimer’s, reveal moments of insight, healing grace, and humor, during what the author calls “a pilgrimage” with her mother. The book’s focus moves away from what is absent in the Alzheimer’s world, to what is present and possible.
Walking…is about more than this heartrending disease. It offers loving, intentional, and spirited ways that caregivers in any situation might respond, especially during difficult times.
