Nicholas Sparks, The Wedding

Debra Dean, The Madonnas of Leningrad

Alice LaPlante
“People think it's just forgetting your keys, she says. Or the words for things. But there are the personality changes. The mood swings. The
hostility and even violence. Even from the gentlest person in the world. You lose the person you love. And you are left with the shell... And you are expected to go on loving them even when they are no longer there. You are supposed to be loyal. It’s not
that other people expect it. It’s that you expect it of yourself. And you long for it to be over soon.”
Alice LaPlante, Turn of Mind

“Caregiving often calls us to lean into love we didn't know possible.”

“I love you but I got to love me more.”
Peggi Speers, The Inspired Caregiver: Finding Joy While Caring for Those You Love

“The phrase 'Love one another' is so wise. By loving one another, we invest in each other and in ourselves. Perhaps someday, when we need someone to care for us, it may not come from the person we expect, but from the person we least expect. It may be our sons or daughter-in-laws, our neighbors, friends, cousins, stepchildren, or stepparents whose love for us has assigned them to the honorable, yet dangerous position of caregiver.”
Peggi Speers, The Inspired Caregiver: Finding Joy While Caring for Those You Love

Norman Doidge
“Not all activities are equal in this regard. Those that involve genuine concentration—studying a musical instrument, playing board games, reading, and dancing—are associated with a lower risk for dementia. Dancing, which requires learning new moves, is both physically and mentally challenging and requires much concentration. Less intense activities, such as bowling, babysitting, and golfing, are not associated with a reduced incidence of Alzheimer’s. (254)”
Norman Doidge

Alice Walker
This is the true wine of astonishment: "We are not over when we think we are.”
Alice Walker

“Many of us follow the commandment 'Love One Another.' When it relates to caregiving, we must love one another with boundaries. We must acknowledge that we are included in the 'Love One Another.”
Peggi Speers

Anne Lamott
“Her purse was a weight, ballast; it tethered her to the earth as her mind floated away.”
Anne Lamott, Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith

William Shakespeare
“Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle's compass come.”
William Shakespeare, Love Poems and Sonnets

Shaun David Hutchinson
“We have to watch Nana's life slipping away from her like a forgotten word. I thought I understood what's happening to her, but this isn't like being robbed a penny at a time. Memories aren't currency to spend; they're us. Age isn't stealing from my grandmother; it's slowly unwinding her.”
Shaun David Hutchinson, We Are the Ants

“A dementia-friendly society is not yet in reach.”
Meryl Comer

“To put it simply--our brain span should match our lifespan.”
Meryl Comer

“I believe that most caregivers find that they inherit a situation where they just kind of move into caregiving. It's not a conscious decision for most caregivers, and they are ultimately left with the responsibility of working while still trying to be the caregiver, the provider, and the nurturer.- Sharon Law Tucker”
Peggi Speers, The Inspired Caregiver: Finding Joy While Caring for Those You Love

“Never give up hope. If you do, you'll be dead already.--Dementia Patient, Rose from The Inspired Caregiver”
Peggi Speers, The Inspired Caregiver: Finding Joy While Caring for Those You Love
