THE VILLAGES, Fla., September 28, 2021 (Newswire.com) – Daniel Austin, professor emeritus of business at Nova Southeastern University, has completed his new book, “Nancy Dear, Dear Nancy”: a moving, equally thought-provoking read about Nancy; a woman diagnosed with dementia. In this book, her husband puts her wife’s journey in paper and the memories the family shared throughout these difficult moments.
Austin shares, “During this past January, I admitted my wife of fifty-five years, Nancy Austin, to a memory care facility as she increasingly needed special care with the diagnosis of dementia. Within six weeks, a lockdown occurred during which our family saw her only through a windowpane. Talking with her depended on the availability of staff cell phones, always unpredictable. The grandchildren, children, and friends tried to touch her, a scene repeated often, leading to painful and frustrating moments.
I decided to write a series of essays about Nancy for our children and grandchildren, which they never knew, memories that reached out wrapped in love and respect for others during the ensuing weeks and months of the pandemic. Soon other relatives and friends wanting to read them finally led to their publication.
The reader may find similar experience, if not the same kind of storylines, as the pandemic is teaching us how to touch our loved ones.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Daniel Austin’s new book brings a closer perspective on what life is like when a loved one is suffering in an illness and all one could do is give them all the love and care they deserve. This is a beautiful journey worth sharing in a time when everyone else may face similar challenges.
Readers can purchase “Nancy Dear, Dear Nancy” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
