Using her personal and professional experiences with Alzheimers Disease, Sharon Gregoire, an Occupational Therapist, guides the reader to understand that there is still joy, personal growth, and meaningful participation in life after diagnosis. The book is a wonderful opportunity to discover and re-discover the people, places and activities that define who we are. Identifying preferences and needs is a step toward maintaining the dignity of self-determination that we all struggle to hold on to as we age, and particularly so when faced with a future that includes Alzheimers Disease. This book is sure to initiate thoughtful conversations about how caregivers and loved ones can work together with the person diagnosed with Alzheimers to remain engaged, involved and connected to friends and family. REVIEW: One of the greatest gifts you can give others is to write down who you are. This book is an excellent tool to do just that. - Jolene Brackey, Author of Creating Moments of Joy
