About the Book

Florrie Munat became her husband Chuck’s caregiver on the day he suffered a severe stroke. Any chances for his recovery were derailed when they learned that Chuck was also suffering from Lewy body dementia. After that devastating news, Florrie and Chuck assumed their loving marriage had been shattered forever. But what happened next surprised them.

With honesty, humor, and compassion, Florrie’s inspiring memoir invites the reader to walk in her shoes as she navigates the roller-coaster journey of caregiving for a spouse with dementia. Despite the daily challenges, she comes to appreciate the reciprocal nature of caregiving—with gifts both given and received. Eventually she discovers the most important lesson of all: that her role as a caregiver has helped her understand the depth and magnitude of her love for Chuck.
