REVIEWING A BOOK ABOUT AN EXTRAORDINARY CAT: MAKING THE ROUNDS WITH OSCAR
Oscar, seemingly an ordinary cat, seems to have extraordinary perceptions. His story is told by Dr. Dosa, a gerontologist who cares for patients with advanced Alzheimer’s in a nursing home. Families of the patients share their experiences and emotions as caretakers, sons, daughters, husbands and wives of Alzheimer’s patients who, after a lifetime of learning, working and raising children are now unlearning. They are unlearning how to get home, how to dress and undress – everything that we do that we take for granted every day.
