Publisher's Description

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. It is one son’s journey with his mom—a mom with Alzheimer’s and a son who did the best he could, and who wrote this story in hopes that you’ll find a few laughs for your journey, realize you’re not alone, and find the courage to do the best you can.
 
So, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and join us on the journey. You’ll find yourself in the laughter and tears of not knowing what to do next and making a decision that you hope works out, knowing it’s the best you can do in the moment.
 
In the end, that’s all that matters. "Do the best you can" is all love requires.
