With no experience in caregiving or even working with the elderly, Anne developed an unshakable bond with Dusty, along with other residents, at the assisted living/memory care facility where they lived. What she learned while there, is told in a series of personal short stories of how she got to know these special people. The author discovered "rays of sunshine through the fog of dementia" and formed surprisingly reciprocal bonds of love. Sometimes life's meaningful lessons are learned in the unlikeliest of places. Her touching experiences are told with honesty and humor, so prepare to laugh and cry in Getting Old is Not for Sissies, and be forever changed as well.
