Most people wouldn’t think poetry and Alzheimer’s disease go together. Alzheimer’s is a tragedy. Poetry is beautiful. Poems That Come to Mind, however finds the beauty and the tragedy. Alzheimer victims may not know their families and friends, they may not be able to make sense of their surroundings, but they still enjoy friendly visitors, holding hands, a warm breeze. I wrote this book in honor of my mother and the other residents of the nursing home she was in. I hope it helps other caregivers find comfort in knowing they are not alone, and that it brings a sense of respect and understanding towards those who suffer dementia.
