The Last Man on Earth' Profile: Pat Brown

The Last Man on Earth' Profile: Pat Brown. He is also a purveyor of ice cream and is a jean art enthusiast. Pat was also a brief incarcerate as well. Pat Brown was portrayed by actor Mark Boone Junior.

Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary LaBianca were victims of the Charles Manson murders. Returning to the bedroom, Watson found Krenwinkel stabbing Rosemary LaBianca with a knife from the LaBianca kitchen

Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary LaBianca were victims of the Charles Manson murders. Leno was a grocery store owner, and Rosemary was also a successful business woman. They lived in the Los Angeles suburb of Los Feliz. Returning to the bedroom, Watson found Krenwinkel stabbing Rosemary LaBianca with a knife from the LaBianca kitchen. Heeding Manson’s instruction to make sure each of the women played a part, Watson told Van Houten to stab Mrs. LaBianca too. She did, stabbing her approximately sixteen times in the back and the exposed buttocks.

How does it feel when someone you love develops dementia? How do you cope with the shock, the stress and the grief? Can you be sure that you and your family will receive the support you need?

In Telling Tales About Dementia, thirty carers from different backgrounds and in different circumstances share their experiences of caring for a parent, partner or friend with dementia. They speak from the heart about love and loss: 'I still find it hard to believe that Alzheimer's has happened to us,' writes one contributor, 'as if we were sent the wrong script.' The stories told here vividly reflect the tragedy of dementia, the gravity of loss, and instances of unsatisfactory diagnosis, treatment and care. But they contain hope and optimism too: clear indications that the quality of people's lives can be enhanced by sensitive support services, by improved understanding of the impact of dementia, by recognising the importance of valuing us all as human beings, and by embracing and sustaining the connections between us. 

This unique collection of personal accounts will be an engaging read for anyone affected by dementia in a personal or professional context, including relatives of people with dementia, social workers, medical practitioners and care staff.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

* I received a free electronic copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book is a collection of personal accounts by family caregivers who have taken care of a loved one suffering from dementia.

"How do you cope alone with your loved one's slow loss of rational thought and behavior? You cannot - and you need not. The single most valuable achievement of this book is to tell carers they are not alone." - John Suchet - Broadcaster and patron of For Dementia who is caring for his wife, who has dementia.

From the Foreword: "With all of us living longer, and facing the real possibility of outliving our own sanity, we need all the research and assistance we can get."

I believe that this is an important book and not only for those who are currently dealing with dementia or taking care of someone who suffers from it. With the number of baby boomers reaching the danger zone for dementia onset (age 70 +) there is little doubt in my mind that dementia will touch everyone's life in some way in the coming years.

It is easy to overlook this disease as something that happens to other people, but how could it hurt to have some knowledge about this disease? As the saying goes, "Knowledge is power."

The majority of the stories in this book come from the United Kingdom, including England and Ireland, but dementia is not a localized disease. Dementia is just as much an issue in the United States and Canada as it is in the UK. Perhaps by reading these stories people will come to a greater understanding of what dementia is and how it affects not only the person who has been diagnosed but also their family and friends.

In the story "The Most Difficult Decision of my Life" by Debbie Jackson the fact that dementia affects people from all walks of life is clearly demonstrated. In in the 1960s Debbie and her husband left their successful careers ( he was a lawyer, she was a social worker) in Capetown, South Africa to move to London, England. They had both been active in the anti-apartheid movement. These are smart, educated, civil-minded people who should have had many decades of intelligent debates left in them. This story highlights the tragedy of dementia. So many brilliant minds are effectively lost to this horrific disease.

You would think that reading all these stories about dementia and the decline in people's health and quality of life would be depressing. But that is simply not true. For me, what most struck me about this book was the love that clearly shines through in each and every story. That kind of love and dedication is inspiring. Everyone should be as lucky (yes, I said lucky) as the dementia sufferers in this book. They may have been unlucky in health, but they have been blessed when it comes to love from spouses, children, family and friends. Imagine how much worse it would be to suffer from this disease if you were all alone in the world. That is a truly scary vision.

I believe that everyone should read this book, whether you know someone who suffers from dementia or Alzheimer's or not. I give this book a much deserved 5 star rating and I will be recommending this book to family, friends and even strangers. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
