Kimberly Williams-Paisley Chronicles Her Mother’s Dementia
Kimberly Williams-Paisley’s mother, Linda Williams, has a rare form of dementia called primary progressive aphasia. Williams-Paisley’s memoir, Where the Light Gets In: Losing My Mother Only to Find Her Again, takes the reader on a family’s journey as dementia caregivers and how it affects not just the person with the disease but the entire family. “Williams-Paisley was definitely not taking the caregiving journey alone. In fact, this is an inspirational book about how a family can create a care team where everyone’s role is important. Instead of hurt feelings, frustration or anger among siblings over who was doing more, this was a family who came together through caregiving.” Read more about the book here.
