About this item
Bring Each Other Home is a "must read" if you, or someone you know, is caring for a person with dementia. Its honesty may cause healing tears to flow. The book is strong medicine, artistically delivered in easy-to-read dosages, packed full of helpful hints, inspirational quotes, and miracles.
Let Angie take your hand and walk you through the seasons of Joe's dementia as reflected in the seasons of time--letting go a little at a time as one does a spring day, seeing new spurts of growth, watering of love and encouragement to give Joe new life at times when life seemed hopeless. You will watch as Angie courts him, dates him, and woos him with loving sentences, humour, and charm to win his smile and help him feel safe and loved. It must have been a precious gift to him.

Angelina has that rare gift of taking the reader alongside as she walks with her husband through the long valley of dementia. This little gem of literature reminds us to never take our health, or the health of our loved ones, for granted. We are encouraged to love them, to hug them as often as we can.
--Rev. John Strik
If you are in a place of care for someone living with dementia, PTSD, or Alzheimer's, and want to understand and love them, this is a great read. The descriptive words and word pictures used by Angelina are filled with human love, faith, and frailty as she shares real life with the reader. My pastor's heart has been informed and blessed.

If you were touched by The Notebook, you must read Bring Each Other Home--an absolute love story! It is a rich tapestry of deep, heartfelt, human emotion. The pages are filled with the author's precious soul-feeding poetry and inspiration from on high. She masterfully intertwines her personal account of navigating the terrain of stroke and dementia/Alzheimer's with the numerous "train stops" throughout her journey. Thank you for sharing this labour of love!
