Blue Ink Review
Anyone who has had to deal with an aging parent with Alzheimer's will appreciate I Will Never Forget, the story of one woman's descent into the vicious disease of dementia. Told by her daughter Elaine Pereira, Betty Ward's tale is both heart-wrenching and humorous...
 
...Just as her mother carried herself with grace and poise, so does Pereira here... With her detailed and well-written retelling of her mother's story, Pereira has delivered an insightful read for those taking similar journeys.

From the Author

From the author, Elaine Pereira:   The impetus for writing the book:
My mother's is a story that needed to be told.  She was a kind, brilliant and talented woman all of my life until Dementia took hold distorting her persona and leaving an agitated, bewildered and compromised person in its wake.
In the shadows of WWII, during an era when very few women attended college, my trailblazing mother earned her Bachelor's Degree in chemistry and later on acquired a Master's in Education.  

Many years later, though, after experiencing a decade of unspeakable tragedies, Mom began to exhibit uncharacteristic and disconcerting changes in her personality.  Episodes of irrational behaviors, paranoia, flashes of hostility and illogical thinking, replaced her formally patient, bright, organized and articulate essence.

In what would be her final months, as my mother continued her rapid descent into Dementia's clutches, her once strong voice faded away.   Our quiet visits together afforded me the opportunity to reflect on the vivacious life that defined her.  I was determined that she would not be remembered as a withering mumbling older woman but as the strong, courageous and gifted lady who was my mom.

I am humbled and honored to have been able to give back to the woman who gave so much and blessed to have many great friends and family who supported me in my endeavor to write I Will Never Forget.

After a decade of great personal sacrifice and unspeakable losses, Mom started her descent into dementia. I stepped up as she slid down, grateful to give back to the woman who gave so much!"
