Publisher's Summary

This story made the editor cry every time he read it. Most stories about Alzheimer's and dementia end with a depressing note, a bleak hope, a grasping at humanity as everything, eventually, fades. This story features a grown man whose dreams of tomorrow and his liturgy of life root him in the very reality of his existence, giving hope for all families who have ever had to deal with this disease.

Will it help your family, too? Buy the audiobook and find out.

Lemonade Anyone!

Excellent short story about a man (Jonathan) who has alzheimers, and is in a nursing home.

It must really suck to be alone in a home with that disease. Jonathan looks forward to his lemonade every day, and dreams of times past.

Theo Holland as usual does a fine job of narrating...I received this audio book for free and this is my voluntary unbiased review.

Dreams of Alzheimer's

This is so sad. I know people who has this. I guess we all pray it doesn't happen to us. I pray everyone who has it has someone to help them but I know they don't. Theo Holland does a good job narraiting this book
