The articles included in the book are gleaned from those twelve years spent on caring for my mother, who suffered from dementia, and the interactions between my loved ones. They are deeply personal, and, in the process, I had not expressly studied scientific data to back up my experiences. More than one hundred causes have been identified to bring about dementia. Each one of the causes is unique and every dementia case is manifested differently, resulting from different and complex considerations. The descriptions of my mother’s dementia experience are not inclusive of all the dementia patients. This book is not a publication dedicated to cognitive impairment; rather, it’s an exploration of life’s many chapters. Furthermore, this book is dedicated to those who are headed toward old age, or senior citizens now enjoying their golden years. Secondly,

the book seeks to acknowledge the caregivers of dementia sufferers: it’s hoped that the caregivers find comfort and hope in the text and narrative presented here, and that they’d build a spiritual, true-self connection with those they care for. Many publications can be found in the bookstores nowadays addressing dementia and the care methods accordingly. To that end, I’m particularly indebted to Dr. Wen-Chuin Hsu, Secretary-General LiYu Tang, Rui-zhi Mission and other similar organizations both in the public and private sectors, whose collective effort to raise awareness for the care of the cognitively-impaired has yielded remarkable results. Praise be to God! Caring for senior citizens is a long, strenuous journey. This book does not get into any geriatric manifestations because, the same manifestation of a specific case of dementia might be triggered by different causes, per the individual’s background. I pray that the experience shared in this book can be used by God, that my readers would be inspired by these stories to overcome any challenge they may encounter, to an extent that the reversal of dementia is made possible.

Again, supportive care for those with dementia is extremely personal. The manifestation of cognitive symptoms is heavily connected to the patient’s past experience. Therefore, the caregiving process for the elderly patient with dementia must be customized for the individual’s temperament and character, much like the caregiving process for individual infants.
