Alzheimers New Zealand reviews Song for Rosaleen


Alzheimers New Zealand has reviewed Pip Desmond’s memoir Song for Rosaleen:

‘So much of life is about letting go. This book traces the labyrinthine journeys of Rosaleen the mother, letting go of life via vascular dementia; of Pip the daughter, letting go of the mother she knew; and of Pip the author, letting go of her care partner role as she translates it into the written word. For me, reading the book began as a professional task and ended as a gentle reflection on life itself and its meaning and purpose.’
