Introducing my new Book
Walking Mama Home
A Caregiver’s Journey
Following my dad’s death in 2015, I took on primary responsibility for my mother’s care. It all happened suddenly, and I had no idea what I was doing. For the next six years, Mama and I made precious memories together, but the convergence of the COVID pandemic and her accelerating dementia swept us into deep water. This memoir is a candid look at the joys and hardships of caring for a parent at the end of life. Ultimately, I hope you’ll find it a testimony to grace.
