The Aging Mind
By: Esther B. Boggs
About the Book
Cynthia Client was a 93 year old wealthy woman who worked her way up from an uneducated child whose mother didn’t believe in educating girls to the one supporting her entire family. With her determination and hard work, she home schools herself and secures a job at one of the largest companies in Hartford, Connecticut. She saves and invests her hard earned money anxiously waiting to enjoy her retirement at her old age. Shortly after she retired, she is diagnosed with dementia.
Annelle Bright, Cynthia’s patient care assistant (PCA) becomes her closest confidant and she tells Annelle her life stories. Together, the two women learn from each other’s ups and down real life experiences.
The Aging Mind sheds light on the life we all live here on earth and how it can be interrupted by different circumstances, such as diseases. It details some of the relationship between elderly dementia/Alzheimer’s patients, their families and care givers.
I hope you read this book in quietness with an open mind and allow yourself to become each character in the book and consider how you would tackle some of the issues they encounter. My greatest wish is that readers will spread the word to protect our senior citizens all around the world.
