Mom is early-to-mid stage mixed dementia, 90, and still likes to read fiction and non-fiction. Even though she retains precious little and cannot discuss the book with you, reading provides her a great deal of in-the-moment pleasure. You can hand her a book she finished the week prior and not recognizing it, she'll start reading all over again! (Brings me a smile). Mom is cognizant of her condition and wants to know more about Alzheimer's and dementia in general. Should I furnish Mom with a book or two on this topic? I'm thinking yes, depending on the book. I don't want her take away to be a sense of hopelessness and would also steer her away from graphic content concerning the advanced stages of the disease. Has anyone else had a loved one with dementia who asked for books about dementia? Opinions pro or con about how to respond are welcome, but especially reading recommendations for appropriate books about dementia/Alzheimer's for the sufferer. Love this forum. I don't feel so all alone. Thanks to all.
