I can thus attest that Lisa and Rosemary's story, or "journey," as Lisa calls it, offers a knowing insight into the disease and also into caregiving. Lisa writes a raw and truthful account of their life with Alzheimer's. Her description is a gift for all of us, as she shares the lessons that she and her family have learned from navigating the disease. Christopher H. van Dyck, MD Yale School of Medicine
Lisa & Rosemary are making a difference.
In Life with MIL Lisa Davenport takes her readers along with her and her mother-in-law, Rosemary, on their journey through the ups, downs, twists, and turns of life with Alzheimer's. Lisa made a promise to Rosemary to tell their whole story, to do what she could to help others on the same journey. Rosemary truly felt that helping others was her way of using this disease for the better.
Whether you are fighting against this disease alongside your own loved one or know someone who is, Life with MIL will help you realize you are not alone, and that it's okay to laugh sometimes. Every time someone picks up this book, a piece of Rosemary's wish to help others is fulfilled as her story brings them a little comfort.
