I Can’t Recall is a sister’s narrative of her brother’s struggle with vascular dementia, diagnosed at age fifty-four. The book delves into family relationships, especially between a brother and sister. Younger individuals akin to Thom, those needing twenty-four hour nursing care, have few options. For Thom, a nursing home was chosen, and the hardships in making that type of decision are illustrated. In Part Two of the book, you will encounter Thom’s journal, which was written during the first two years of his life at the nursing home. These journal entries are an amazing representation of dementia from the actual viewpoint of a person suffering from this incurable disease. The book illustrates the many twists and turns of managing a situation such as Thom’s; reveals hope and fear; tells of sadness and happiness; imparts a bit of humor; and paints a picture of unconditional love.
