As life expectancy increases, dementia will become one of our greatest health challenges. Who are we without memory? And how do we care for those who lose it? Pip Desmond, author of the acclaimed Trust: A True Story of Women and Gangs, has written a memoir detailing the process of her family’s coming to grips with their mother Rosaleen’s dementia. Song for Rosaleen celebrates a life while giving an account of the practical and ethical dilemmas the condition presents. Desmond shares this timely story with Carole Beu.
