A Story of Dementia, Caregiving and Unconditional Love
This one woman show by Jonatha Brookes, an award winning singer and songwriter is so beautifully written and performed there should be a warning label with it, "Empty your bladder and bring your Kleenex" because you will be brought to tears and lifted with joy as your belly aches from laughing. You are going to adore her music and the magic in her messaging!
My guess is you will never look at dementia the same again.
