Often, children see a loved one suffer from some form of dementia, but the they aren’t part of the family discussion or care plan. This disease not only affects the person diagnosed, but the entire family including the children.
The book is inspired by the Toby’s own family, which was forced to confront the pain and progression of the disease in both their mother and grandmother. This book is a great resource to jump- start a family discussion.
Toby’s book has been added to the Alzheimer’s Disease Education Center’s resource list for children and teens. Additionally the book is included in the Greenfield Library (the largest, dementia specific library in the country) and the virtual library where it is on the “kid and teens” resource list.
