Written for harried caregivers who might have time to read two lines, or twenty, or perhaps thewhole thing as a loved one naps,Be With balances candor about the devastations of dementiawith insights into its paradoxical and at-times uncanny enhancements of life, the surprising re-discoveries of what was once thought lost.
Through it all, Barnes emphasizes fellowship and presence. The profound importance of beingwith.
From the award-winning author ofThe Adjustment League, comes a series of simple letters towhoever needs to read them. Be With is a meditation on the vital -- and often overlooked -- worldof caregivers and those they watch over.
