Bits ‘n Pieces of Me: Memoirs to retain identity in the face of growing dementia

Book Cover

Pages for this book of memoirs are at right upper corner of this website, found under top header; some browsers show it as a tab, “Bits ‘n Pieces … Memoirs”.  My husband’s iPad shows menu icon in upper right corner, beside search magnifying glass icon.

I appreciate comments from all, but especially from fellow persons with dementia, on readability and whether pages are helpful or inspirational for you.  At some time in the future I may publish as book, so input is appreciated.
