The Long Hello ~ The Other Side of Alzheimer’s
By Cathie Borrie, RN, BSN, MPH, JD

In this shimmering jewel of a memoir, The Long Hello ~ The Other Side of Alzheimer’s, author Cathie Borrie traverses rich terrain as she unearths the hidden and often painful treasures of a life well lived: the shadows and joys of childhood, the relationships that leave us both illuminated and bereft, the love, longing and loss that surge to the fore when a parent is ailing from dementia. Memory, and the losing of it, serves as a powerful guide, and Borrie follows her mother's eccentric and poetic lead into the past, transformed by the unexpected brilliance of the elder woman's shifting dementia mind. A paean of redemptive beauty, The Long Hello cherishes the bond between mothers and daughters and creates a startling change in society's perception of those journeying through Alzheimer's. Available in paperback, eBook, audio book through: www.cathieborrie.com.
