Each moment was new-but it was also full of love, anger, or fear, and he had to travel through it." In a matter of days, Eve Soldinger's life and family changed utterly: Her beloved father was diagnosed with dementia. The challenges are those every adult child faced with caring for an aging parent will recognize: How do I see to his needs? How do I protect him? How do I explain to others? But her insight and experience also bring a fresh, hopeful perspective. Discover with Eve and her family how they not only coped with practical challenges, but transformed heartbreaking years into a time of laughter, growth, and love-unexpected gifts that will enrich the lives of all families who walk this path.

Arno Geiger hat ein tief berührendes Buch über seinen Vater geschrieben, der trotz seiner Alzheimerkrankheit mit Vitalität, Witz und Klugheit beeindruckt. Die Krankheit löst langsam seine Erinnerung und seine Orientierung in der Gegenwart auf, lässt sein Leben abhandenkommen. Arno Geiger erzählt, wie er nochmals Freundschaft mit seinem Vater schließt und ihn viele Jahre begleitet. In nur scheinbar sinnlosen und oft so wunderbar poetischen Sätzen entdeckt er, dass es auch im Alter in der Person des Vaters noch alles gibt: Charme, Witz, Selbstbewusstsein und Würde. Arno Geigers Buch ist lebendig, oft komisch. In seiner tief berührenden Geschichte erzählt er von einem Leben, das es immer noch zutiefst wert ist, gelebt zu werden.
