Driven by the desire to help others struggling with a loved one suffering from memory disease, author Elizabeth Lonseth, has used her parent’s and in-laws personal stories to help orient and guide families affected by this disease. This sixty-eight page booklet is an introduction and support booklet for caregivers and family members. Elizabeth will be giving a forty minute presentation with a question and answer period afterwards. This is a free event, light hors d’ oeuvres will be served.
Brian Granbouche, former Executive Director of Aegis of Dana Point: “Elizabeth Lonseth shares her personal stories of dealing with loved ones with memory loss disease...She gives us page after page of practical advice, wisdom, and grace from someone who has experienced not one, not two, but all four of her parents developing dementia as they grew older. Her insights and personal stories are touching and relatable; it is a must read for anyone coping with a family member with dementia.”
Dr. Sameh Elsanadi, MD Geriatric Psychiatrist: “One of the main steps toward accepting and dealing with this disease, I have found, is to realize that other individuals and families are under the same burden. Elizabeth has provided a great service to the dementia and Alzheimer’s community by writing about her family’s experience with the disease...with the assistance of A Gradual Disappearance, managing this disease will become much easier.”
