As Canada's population continues to age and lifespans lengthen, the incidence of dementia is also on the increase, with Alzheimer's being the most common. For twelve years, author Marilyn Duncan cared for her beloved mother after she developed dementia. Remembering You Until God Whispers My Name is the moving memoir of a devoted daughter who becomes a strong health and social advocate for her mother as she gradually loses her mental faculties. Told with love, humour, poetry and through her grief, the story of Marilyn and her mother Jeannette Marguerite Sealey (née Butler) will help anyone who reads it to better understand how to show respect and give dignity to those on their final journey and their caregivers. Marilyn reminds us that grief is a very personal journey that we need to take to heal after losing a loved one. She also reminds us that laughter and joy are not disrespectful while caregiving to someone with dementia.
