Description
Veteran hospital social worker Ellen P. Young, who saw both her mother and aunt struggle with Alzheimer's, says that though hard to find, humor is often the best medicine. It can be found in the simplest of words and actions. Between Two Worlds is a unique attempt to explore, through personal accounts and colorful, revealing vignettes, those precious, unforgettable moments of humor and lightheartedness found while ministering to those with debilitating Alzheimer's and related dementia. Young brings the quiet courage of care providers and relatives to life as each mines the depths of their caregiving experience to reveal touching and gently humorous moments that go a long way to ease the tension and pain.

While respectful of the plight of affected families and patients, Young's touching chapters form a timeless collection of "fear busters" that "access mirth."
