It is always challenging to watch a loved one grow older and face new, confusing obstacles that always seemed easy. Does Grandma Remember Me? shows how love transcends age and difficulties, even when things become overwhelming.
Evita’s passion is assisting the elderly, especially those living with dementia. Her mission is to help people age in the manner they envision for themselves and not through the lens of others. She works to provide data and resources to assist elders in effectively aging-in-place and equips their families and friends to support their loved ones amidst uncertainty. Working in the elder care field as a licensed nursing home administrator, senior living marketing professional, and Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), Evita witnesses both elders and families make tough decisions. Some of those decisions result in despair, while others result in healing. The key to enabling elders to live life to its fullest is to help them find their voices and exercise their right to choose.
Evita collaborates with family and friends to ensure that her mother, who lives with dementia, and her father, recently diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, maintain their voices and make well-informed choices as their disease progresses.

Many grandchildren are growing up with grandmothers who have dementia. My great-grandchildren are experiencing this. It can be a discouraging and confusing time for these children. Some visits are fine and then some visits are hard or even scary to little ones. The wonderful thing about Does Grandma Remember Me? is that children can see and hear the words about why Grandma is acting different.
The little girl is describing her grandma and how sweet she is. She is a grandma who loves to sit and read to her granddaughter and bake with her, too. But, now the little girl is noticing that her grandma is confused, loses things, and is forgetful. She talks with her mother who explains dementia and helps the little girl to realize that even if her grandma forgets her, she won’t forget to love her grandma.
This pleases the girl. Children need to be reassured when important aspects of their lives change, and this book gives parents a helpful way to share a positive way to handle it.
