About this item

Sometimes, life takes you places you don't want to go. Dementia and Alzheimer's is a journey no one wants to take, yet life doesn't give us a choice. Author Mike Glenn's mom didn't want to be sick, and while she couldn't overcome the devastation of disease, she wasn't going down without a fight. She fought the illness, denying its presence. She fought the doctors, "Who were these idiots anyway?" And she fought him, "How come you think you're in charge now?" Coffee with Mom is a book about a mom's fight with dementia and the struggle of a son who wanted to help but didn't always know how. Most of their conversations - and sometimes battles - happened during morning coffee. This book isn't about knowing all of the answers.
