About the Author
Evita’s passion is assisting the elderly, especially those living with dementia. Her mission is to help people age in the manner they envision for themselves and not through the lens of others. She works to provide data and resources to assist elders in effectively aging-in-place and equips their families and friends to support their loved ones amidst uncertainty. Working in the eldercare field as a licensed nursing home administrator, senior living marketing professional, and Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), Evita witnesses both elders and families make tough decisions. Some of those decisions result in despair, while others result in healing. The key to enabling elders to live life to its fullest is to help them find their voices and exercise their right to choose.
Evita collaborates with family and friends to ensure that her mother, who lives with dementia, and her father, recently diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, maintain their voices and make well-informed choices as their disease progresses.
Does Grandma Remember Me? is a sweet picture book written by Evita Sherman with the aim to help children understand Dementia in a way that is understandable to them.
A young girl in the book describes her special bond with her Grandma, both before and after Grandma contracts the disease of Dementia. She loves sitting on her grandmother’s lap and look at her big, brown eyes. Grandma makes her feel special. But her Grandma has now changed. She is a different person. The little girl learns that her grandmother is sick but not the kind where you cough and blow your nose. Her Grandma has a disease called Dementia which makes her forget things and act weird. Despite her challenges in adjusting to Grandma’s new condition, the little girl focuses on the bright side and discovers that she can still love her Grandma no matter what the situation is.
For children who have a loved one with Dementia, this gentle story will help them understand their new normal in regard to their relationship with the loved one. Evita Sherman uses her years of experience working in the eldercare field to describes the difficulties of loving someone with Dementia. She also addresses the changes that come with the condition and some of the emotions a child might feel in that situation. She carefully points out that there are ways to have a successful relationship with that loved one.
With charming, sensitive illustrations, this story gently introduces young readers to the realities of Dementia’s disease and reminds them that love is more powerful than any illness can be.
