Do I Know You?: Living Through the End of a Parents Life by Bette Ann Moskowitz

Do I Know You? is a clear-eyed account of one womans neurological slide into advanced senility. Sorting through the telltale signs of Mary Solomons evolving senescence - stale crackers in an otherwise empty refrigerator, once immaculate floors turned sticky, unpaid bills, forgetfulness, withdrawal - Bette Moskowitz has created an unforgettable portrait of an ordinary woman at the end of her life. That Mary Solomon is her mother makes the story all the more unsettling and powerful. Moskowitz has voiced that every one of us will one day have to ask. When do you become the parent to your own parent? How do you balance the desire to protect the dignity and independence of the elderly with the desire that they be safe? How would you want to grow old? While this journey will be different for everyone, the candor and humanity of Do I Know You? provides reassurance and guidance where there has been little, and a sense of grace and hope where there has been none at all.
