Journeying with Jim
My personal reflections of caregiving successes and challenges while Dementia robbed me of the man I loved
by Noreen Peters




Journeying with Jim is an intimate, detailed account of a wife’s experience with her soul mate’s Dementia. As Noreen Peters quickly learned, a diagnosis of Dementia throws life into disarray for two people—patient and caregiver. Together she and her husband made a journey into the unknown, and discovered that it contained abundance of love, hope, and support.

While the story does not shy away from the horror of the disease, it also focuses on the powerful positive companions that accompany those enduring it—namely, love, commitment, and community. Here is a caregiver’s poignant and revealing story of the mental and emotional stress of caring for the love of her life as he loses the battle with his neurological disease. It serves as a source of information for those who face the same challenges, and will help readers travel a smoother journey as a caregiver.


Are you travelling the Dementia journey with someone you are caring for? Maybe you could use this acrostic to give you a different way to look at your situation:

Joyful moments to cherish

Opportunities to learn

Unexpected challenges to stretch you

Resources to share with others

New skills to acquire

Experiences to remember

You are not alone

This book contains a wife’s personal and touching story of her journey through Dementia with the man she loved.
