Keeper of the Clouds illustrates an instance in time between a mother living with Alzheimer's and her daughter. In the midst of an overwhelming experience, Keeper points to a moment of stillness and beauty that helps the daughter enhance her connection with her mother's world.

One of the major challenges in dementia care today is isolation for both the diagnosed individual and family members. Keeper offers a glimpse for how to communicate and rebuild relationships that encourages family members to be present in the moment as much as possible, helping the person in their care bring their rich inner world into being through attentive listening and engagement.

Reviews:

I received Keeper of the Clouds. What a beautiful book! Thank you for sharing. Moments like this happen often with my mother, though I don't think mom has Alzheimer's, maybe some dementia.  I think a lot has to do with her hearing loss, but she does get confused. The book makes me aware that I just have to keep smiling and taking things as they come.
