Book Reading: We Danced- A Story About Love & Dementia
New local author Scott Rose will share his touching book, We Danced: Our Story of Love and Dementia. This memoir shares the early, troubled years of the author’s wife and transitions to their first meeting, relationship, and marriage. Frontotemporal Dementia, FTD, interrupted their love story. The author devotedly cared for his wife ‘till her passing. He weaves in journals, letters, and social media posts and lays bare their life through her incurable disease.
Dementia caregiving expert Teepa Snow reflects, “The ways in which they continued to celebrate life after her diagnosis and the tips shared are valuable and beautiful insights for those living with dementia and their care partners.”
The book is available on-line at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and Scott will bring both hardback and paperback copies to Cup of Tea for purchase and signing. He will share information regarding his wife and FTD and, depending on the turn out, will read excerpts from his book.
