Dementia Will Double in the Next 12 Years

By 2030, more than 65 million people in the world will be living with dementia and twice as many people will be involved in caring for them. Almost everyone in the U.S. will know someone with memory loss (a family member, friend, co-worker, or neighbor) and many will be involved in caring for someone with dementia.

What is it like to care for someone with dementia?

In his new novel Forgotten Flowers, Mike Sullivan showcases how hard it is to take care of loved ones once they’ve disappeared behind the grey fog of dementia. His story touches on the very core of what makes us human—our memories.

As noted by one reader, “The author weaves intrigue, romance, greed, pride, infidelity, selfishness, treachery, deceit, evil, and even murder into a roller coaster ride that grips the reader.”

Forgotten Flowers focuses on people we should never forget, even as they forget us a little more each day.
