Since 2012 Prof. Janet E. Smith has been caring for her mother who has dementia, a time of enormous growth in patience and also admiration – for each other.
With her usual wit, humor, and insight, Prof. Smith shares her anecdotes about herself, BAD (Beleaguered Aging Daughter), and her mother, BAM (Beloved Aged Mother) as they face the challenges of living with, and caring for someone whose world narrows every day. Share in the journey as you discover anew the joy that is found in valuing the dignity of the person with dementia and how fully human they remain through every stage of the illness.
“This time with my mother has been profoundly illuminative of how God cares for those he loves.”
– Prof. Janet E. Smith
