    It’s good to know this resource is available. I love that the title destigmatizes, and the overview sounds great.

    Jemi, I love that you associated the story with dance. Dancing makes us happy and we need to be able to see happiness through all the pain.

    Juneta, thank you so much for being a part of Jemi’s tour and sharing this inspiring story with your readers.

    At least your mother can still enjoy herself dancing. I think by the time my aunt went into a care facility, she was in total repeat mode and didn’t remember anything.

      That makes me so sad! Even now that mom’s in a wheelchair (which she doesn’t realize), she loves to dance!

    A lot of verbal dancing as well as real dancing. That must be hard to hear her ask about her husband and your father over and over.

      Exactly! It is tough! Thankfully all of her questions/obsessions come and go and she changes it up after a while!

    Hi,
    I agree with the dancing steps for dementia mentioned here. Sometimes that is all that you can do.
    The book was a very good read.

      Thank you, Pat! Mom loves music and dancing (as you now know!) and I like that the title honours her 🙂
