When Someone You Love No Longer Remembers hits the need for comfort that every caregiver needs. Having cared for my elderly mom for over eight years, and a daughter with a mental illness at the same time, I know first-hand that exhaustion, loneliness, and depression are very real enemies for caregivers. Cecil’s new book is a cup of cold water to the weary.”
You will be hard pressed to make it through the two dozen vignettes in this book without tears forming in your eyes. Those who have walked this difficult road will recognize themselves and find comfort as they learn from others’ struggles. Those who haven’t are likely to find compassion welling up in their hearts for people walking through this valley. Cecil Murphey is a best-selling author because of his sensitivity, creativity, and teacher-heart. When Someone You Love No Longer Cares will strengthen his reputation as a master of storytelling and instruction.”

PieperMount Dora, FLGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It's hard to find a family untouched by Alzheimer's or dementia. Your neighbor's forgotten how to feed himself. Your co-worker's wife becomes agitated when she can't recall the word she needs. And the man at church slips further into silence every day.
With firm yet compassionate words, author Cec Murphey comes alongside caregivers to offer empathy, understanding, and advice borne of experience. WHEN SOMEONE YOU LOVE NO LONGER REMEMBERS presents a treasure chest of caregiver wisdom in gift book format. Tender illustrations, true stories, and real-life examples end in the aphorisms that have become Murphey's trademark. A brief section about laying aside our dreams ends with the bolded statement, "I didn't ask for this assignment. But as I serve my loved one, I'm also serving my loving God."
I'll share my review copy with a friend struggling to balance work, church responsibilities, and caring for her mother. Bless the caregiver in your life this Christmas or New Year's with the gift of this tender, touching, and to-the-point publication.
