Cozy up with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate and enjoy the winter book club with Bonnie Beam-Stratz from the Aging and Disability Resource Center. The group will be taking a literary journey with Susan Marshall in the caregiving of her parents as written in her book “Mom’s Gone Missing: When a Parent’s Changing Life Upends Yours.” Mom’s Gone Missing is not a how-to book. It’s a here’s-what-unfolded book, a story of a daughter’s experience with a father s decade-long Alzheimer s journey and a mother’s lightning fast dementia decline and both of their deaths.
The narrative includes sibling tensions, a bewildering array of healthcare, financial and legal decisions, reconciliation of lifelong hurts, and the emotional tsunami that surges through all.
Susan Marshall will be joining the group on the third and final session for an author “meet and greet.”
If you are interested in participating in the book club or have questions please contact Bonnie at email@example.com or call 608-324-3600.
