  2. This is a book I will have to pick up. I, too, am struggling with my Gramma struggling with dementia. It is heart-wrenching to say the least. Thanks for this.

  3. It has affected our family as well and will have to look for this book and give it a read!

  4. My mother, for the last two years of her life suffer through this terrible disease. Although there was much sadness on my part, I came to grips with it and carried on conversations, knowing that I would have to reintroduce myself the next day. I became “nice girl” to her. I appreciate you taking the time to review the “Long Hello” and am putting it on my reading list.

  5. I’ve also read the book – Goodreads win. I like the easy reading format.

  6. This sounds like a very touching and moving story. Based on the subject matter I would expect this story to be sad, but I’m glad to hear that it is not. Thank you for sharing this review.

  7. Sounds like a good book, can’t wait to read it!! Thank You, for your review 🙂

  8. Sounds like a book worth reading, I will add it to my list for 2015.

  9. This sounds like a very interesting book. It is so hard taking care of an Elderly parent with dementia. That is why family members need to get help! I would like to read this book and see her perspective in how she coped with her mother.

    I know that a lot of people will have encountered dementia/Alzheimer’s disease in older family members. It’s a horrible disease and unfortunately it also affects younger people too. My mother suffered from dementia when she was in her 80s and it is so hard when your mother doesn’t know who you are any more, it’s heartbreaking in fact. At the same time, thankfully they, by this stage don’t know what’s happening.
