Mothering Mother : a daughter's humorous and heartbreaking memoir
O'Dell, Carol D.
Adult Nonfiction HQ755.86 .O355 2007

Comments  Summary  Author Notes

Summary: Compelling and heartrending, this personal memoir chronicles the author's decision not to put her mother, who has Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, in "one of those homes" and relays the far-reaching consequences this choice has on her entire family. Detailing the challenges of reversing roles and learning to mother one's own mother, this refreshing and entertaining autobiography will help those struggling with their own decisions on elder care in the home. It touches on the importance of relationships--such as how they impact our souls and beliefs about ourselves and the quality of life--and explores the larger questions of faith, hope, and ultimately death.
