The threads of each of our lives are woven to form unique personal memories, our stories. With the onset of dementia these threads become tangled and frayed forming unfamiliar designs interwoven with strands collected from yesterday’s fragmented recollections and today’s confusing encounters.
‘If the person doesn’t know you anymore, what’s the point of going to see them?’ Memory Weaving is an eloquent answer to this. It is a book about loss and love, the gradual loss of the person as dementia progresses, and the loyalty and love that endures. The person remains – mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, spouse, friend… They have a history and if the cannot hold their memories then we must do so for them, to weave anew the fabric of lived experience.
Our culture tends to define what is human by what a person does or achieves… this book reminds us that this is not so.
If you have or care for someone with dementia, you will find your own experiences in this anthology. If you want family and friends to understand the journey you and the one you love are making, give them this book!
