About the Book: Monica Graham got her first inkling that her eighty-nine-year-old mother might not be able to continue living on her own when her mom coated chicken breasts with dishwashing liquid instead of olive oil. It was an easy mistake—the two bottles lived right beside one another on the kitchen counter. Graham could easily have done the same thing herself, she thought. But as her visit with her mom in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, progressed, Graham—who lives in Pictou, Nova Scotia—began to recognize that her mother had been hiding the signs that her memory was failing. So began the process of finding a place for her mother to live—and of clearing out several decades’ worth of belongings.
Part memoir, part cautionary tale, part how-to guide, Senior Moment offers insight and practical guidance for Atlantic Canadians on how to guide a loved one into the world of continuing care. With wit, wisdom, and whimsy, author Monica Graham explores the hurdles and rewards of caring for our elders.
