Our Dementia Journey – Pat McTaggart
A collection of heartfelt and emotional poems about one family’s journey with dementia including messages of hope and advice for those on the
same journey. At the same time, it is an uplifting collection of poems in its own right showing the power of the human spirit to overcome challenges with faith, hope and love.
Written from the perspective of a son caring for his Dad who has dementia and his Mum who has other health issues, the poems take us through the family’s dementia journey and include reflections and thoughts on different aspects of the journey from the perspective of his Dad, as well as the rest of the family.
The series of poems also looks at the emotional challenges faced by carers who can feel all sorts of emotions, often all at the same time and how they
need to find a way of caring for their loved one while also coping and caring for themselves.
Our wonderful supporter Pat McTaggart has written this collection of poems as a celebration of his Mum and Dad and his family’s love for them.
It is also his strong hope that the messages in the poems help others avoid some of the heartache and emotional stresses he suffered and that there are at least one or two nuggets in the book that will be helpful to others at some stage of their journey.
