The Dementia Chronicles Full Blog Series

“The Dementia Chronicles” full blog series is out in paperback and eBook, two years after the death of my mother. The series annals the trials and heartbreak of my mother as she suffered with Alzheimer’s Disease, coupled with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and with bouts of schizophrenia. In my humble and non-medical opinion, the COPD caused brain trauma. Without proper oxygen getting to the brain, the brain will die. Although, I must say, I remember my Mom’s mom being a smidgen schizophrenic. But I’m not sure the schizophrenia was a side effect of the other two problems.

Anyway, you can now read all of the posts in a single format whether print or digital. Thank you for all your kind comments during this trying time. You have no idea how much support you gave me.

The Dementia Chronicles by Susan Wingate

Ripped from Susan Wingate’s blog, THE DEMENTIA CHRONICLES is a memoir of the time Susan’s mother lived with them, an eighteen-month period during her final stages of Alzheimer’s Disease.

“The Dementia Chronicles” blog series depicts, in each of twenty-six installments, tender mercies, heartache, trials, and a fight to sustain her mother’s life.


The Dementia Chronicles is one woman’s personal observations as the primary caregiver for an aging parent with Alzheimer’s Disease and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. A discussion on aging and senescence and caring for sick parents, The Dementia Chronicles ponders issues such as health and fitness of the elderly as well as genetically-fed family health issues.
