Overview

The Circle was published with a vision of helping families and caregivers of aging, mentally frail loved ones cope with the ongoing realizations of dementia. This book is unique in that it addresses the emotional and human side of this disease while most available books concentrate on the dry medical practicalities. Sally Smith, whose inspiring personal account--closing the family home and moving her mother into an assisted living facility--resulted in a book that critics have said is "healing, hilarious and very helpful to those of us sharing similar experiences." The manuscript was given as a gift to the Medical University of South Carolina and published to raise awareness and support for research into Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, dementia, vision and hearing loss and other age-related problems. 100% of the net proceeds will benefit research into these issues.

    Helpful for those with aging parents

    The book told the story of four siblings dealing with their Mother's dementia and the tasks of moving her into a home and distributing her life's collection of things. It was suggested to me as my Mother was dying and became useful in handling her death and her possessions as a joint effort with my three siblings. By reading this book beforehand we were able to get through the process and remain close.
