The Long Goodbye

View descriptionShare

Subscribe to Mamamia

The first time Keri Kitay’s mother Terry forgot where she parked her car, she was surprised and annoyed. But she wasn’t alarmed. It wasn’t until years later that she would realise it was one of the first signs of early onset Alzheimers which would slowly dismantle her mother’s life.

There are around 15 Australians per 1,000 living with dementia and a tiny percentage of those are relatively young.

This is the story of one person and the way her family said their long goodbye.

Keri's book The Long Goodbye is available here.
