Item Description...
In this book, the author traces the spiritual and emotional meaning that emerged in the lives of both herself and her mother during their visits together in a Midwest nursing home. She came to see that both she and her mother were on a pilgrimage. The result was this sensitive, hopeful book, which challenges stereotypes about Alzheimer's disease and deftly shifts the emphasis from fear and horror to love and possibility.

Publishers Description
People seeking inspiration at any time, for brief moments or all in one sitting as the stories are short and self-contained. People of all ages and of varied life experiences will be touched by the common, everyday approach. Caregivers and professionals alike will appreciate the fresh ideas and tangible alternatives presented in each cluster of stories. Highlights how mother-daughter visits in a Midwest nursing home take on spiritual and emotional meaning in both their lives; their pilgrimage together challenges stereotypes about Alzheimer's Disease and deftly shifts the emphasis from fear and horror to love and possibility. The hundreds of books regarding Alzheimer's currently on the market deal primarily with practical matters: legal, financial, nursing care needs. Walking One Another Home goes beyond lists and tips, things to do, and answers. Instead, it explores deeper levels of meaning and core questions: "How do I make sense of this?" "How can I transform this into a spiritual experience?" "How shall I deal with this and maintain a caring relationship?"

Walking My Own Mother Home  Sep 26, 2005
I cannot tell you how much this book has helped me. My own mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's four months ago. It's almost eerie how some of the author's own experiences mirror mine as well. I gave the book to my sister and brother who are with me "waking mother home." My sister read it all the first night I gave it to her. She cried through most of it, but it helped her and us so much. Thank you, Rita Bresnahan!
Gifts received in the Midst of Pain  Aug 16, 2003
Walking One Another Home is a book not only for people dealing with Alzheimers in their family, but for everyone who has to walk a loved one home. Rita's openness in sharing her feelings on this pilgrimage, are not only touching but so very honest. It is in sharing her frustrations, and consequent revelations gained, that the author helps the reader learn how to let go of past and be present and aware of the gifts offered, often unknowingly, by their loved one. This book is a must for those who are caring for dying loved ones, for those whose loved ones have already passed and are struggling to make sense out of their loss, and for all of us whose parents are aging and soon will find ourselves walking this journey.
