Rating: 4/5

Jann Arden captured her experience with caring for her parents who had dementia. I can only imagine how heartbreaking, frustrating, and tiresome all this must’ve been for her. I myself have lost my grandmother, not in the same fashion as her but, I did and still felt a lot of guilt because I know I got frustrated a lot too with my grandmother taking care of her. It was always me doing the work and I myself was working a full-time job and going to school full-time as well. But, now after going through all this ordeal after her death I really wish she was still around. I felt a lot of emotions reading this book. It was refreshing to see all the great recipes Jann incorporated into her book. I actually want to try some of them out. I really think people who are dealing with a family member suffering from dementia or anything that requires them to be taking care of constantly should read this. You’ll cry, you’ll laugh, you’ll be angry, but that’s what a great book does.
