Book Description from Back Cover

In Honolulu, Hawai'i, caregivers meet at a writing workshop and together create the life-changing poetry in Mosaic Moon. Yet this book is much more than a collection of inspirational poetry. It is a unique resource for anyone with a loved one suffering from Alzheimers disease or other long-term illness. Here is a writing tool for non-writers, brimming with ideas and techniques for finding solace in journaling and poetry. Designed for both individual caregivers and for support groups conducting workshops, Mosaic Moon offers hope, humor and a powerful antidote to the heavy burden of caregiving.
