Alzheimer Niagara Presents, “Holding on to Mamie: My Mother, Dementia and Me”

A Daughter’s Memoir About Dementia

Elizabeth Murray’s poignant memoir, Holding on to Mamie: My Mother, Dementia and Me, chronicles her mother’s experience with dementia and the transformation of a once vibrant woman. As dementia took hold, Murray became the target of her mother’s increasing anger and paranoia.

“Intellectually, I knew that her disease was to blame,” Murray explains. “Emotionally, it was very difficult to accept.”

Murray’s memoir began as a personal exercise in healing; by sharing her story, she is helping others navigate their own journey with the disease.

This event is hosted by the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region.
