Publisher's Summary

Drawing on the author’s seven years of caring for his mother through Alzheimer's, Be With: Letters to a Caregiver is what its title promises: four dispatches to an anonymous long-term caregiver. In brief passages that cast fresh light on what it means to live with dementia, Barnes shares trials, insights, solace - and, ultimately, inspiration.

Meant to be a companion in waiting rooms, on bus routes, or while a loved one naps, Be With is a dippable source of clarity for harried listeners who might only have time for a few lines. Mike Barnes writes with sensitivity and grace about fellowship, responsibility, and joyful relatedness - what it means to simply be with the people that we love.
