"What Are You Doing Here?" is about dementia. The core of teh book charts the journey of the author's mother from mild confusion to severe dementia, from being cared for at home to her final years in a rest home.
More than a memoir, this unsentimental but compassionate account draws on interviews with other family caregivers and challenges some of the popular myths about dementia. Does it lead to 'loss of the self'? What does it mean when your mother doesn't know you? How do you communicate with someone who has lost control of words? What's it really like in a dementia care rest home? Can you prevent dementia? Is there any hope on the horizon?
