Dancing With Dementia Release Date

Dancing With Dementia has a release date!

March 31, 2020.

About 2 months away … so cue the freak out!


This book has been a labour of love for the last few years. The majority of the book is the story our journey. The collection of stories should make you laugh, sigh, shake your head, and blink back a few tears.

The latter part of the book includes lists for people who have someone with dementia in their lives. There are lists of early warning signs we’ve seen, tips to redirect and reassure those with dementia, ideas to ease communication, tips on how to make the move to a nursing home or other living situation, and tips to take care of the caregiver.

Dementia is NOT an easy disease. It’s horrific and cruel. We’ve managed to keep our Mom mostly happy and content. She's still laughing, still dancing. We hope our story will help others who are in the first steps of this dance with Dementia.

If you are interested in an ARC, please let me know (in the comments, email, or sign up for the newsletter).

The wonderful Mason Canyon (MC Book Tours) is going to help me out by hosting a blog tour for the release. If you are interested, you can sign up HERE.



My website is now active. 
I've set up another blog to discuss more things dementia related. 
I also have a YouTube Channel devoted to Quick Tips based on ideas in the book.

The only links I have available at the moment are for Amazon. Here are .com and .ca links, but it should be available in all countries. The price is set at $0.99 (US) for preorders and the first couple of weeks after release. After that, the price will jump up.

Amazon.com           Amazon.ca.         Apple Books.         Kobo           Barnes & Noble

Add it to your Goodreads shelf here!

Once other links for the books are ready, I'll let you know!

So, that's the news! If you know anyone who might benefit from the book or tips, I hope you'll let them know. Thanks!!

  4. There have definitely been tears (and smiles of rueful recognition) as I start reading. Which is not a bad thing since tears are one way to release excess toxins.

  5. Jemi, I'm honored to help you promote your book. It's amazing and inspiring. It should be a MUST READ for anyone who hasn't or is just now having to deal with that terrible disease and for those who have had to deal with it, it will be a comfort to know others have gone through the same or similar problems they had to face.

  7. Congratulations on this Jemi. Dementia is the most debilitating disease and I think most of us know someone who is or has been thus afflicted.

  10. Congrats on your upcoming release. Dementia is something that touches so many of our lives- and it can be so hard to deal with. I have told a close friend about your blog and hope she will stop by and read it, as she is struggling with her own mother's dementia. Best of luck!

  11. Congrats Jemi. I'm so thrilled for you!
    My mom is 90 years young and she now has moments of forgetfulness... but she's such a strong individual.
    I think that Dementia is a condition that will eventually affect every person's life, directly or indirectly.

  18. WOW, Jemi! Congrats! You made it happen! You should be so proud of yourself. Wishing you all the best with your tour. I hope to help out, but I need to pull myself together after my slight bout with skin cancer. Ugh. Not fun, but still recovering, I hope to be pulled together by then..,

    1. Oh no! I didn't know about the skin cancer situation! That's so scary and I don't know if 'slight' and 'cancer' belong in the same sentence. I hope you're taking good care of you. Healing and getting yourself together is the #1 priority. Take care and know I'm thinking of you and sending healing vibes!

  19. Congrats! I love that you have made something positive out of something that can be so devastating.

  20. Did you realize there's a 12 word sentence you can tell your crush... that will induce deep feelings of love and impulsive attraction to you buried inside his heart?

    Because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's impulse to love, idolize and protect you with all his heart...

    12 Words Will Fuel A Man's Love Instinct

    This impulse is so hardwired into a man's genetics that it will drive him to try better than ever before to build your relationship stronger.

    Matter-of-fact, fueling this all-powerful impulse is so binding to getting the best possible relationship with your man that once you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

    ...You'll immediately notice him expose his mind and heart to you in such a way he's never expressed before and he'll identify you as the only woman in the world who has ever truly tempted him.
