The Shapes of Memory Loss


This collection of poetry, fiction, and narrative is written by and about people with cognitive impairment or dementia. The authors, all affiliated with the U-M Health System, come forward to share their personal experience to offer a view into the often isolated and not fully understood journey that those with memory loss and cognitive impairment are on.

This serves as an educational and support tool for anyone who has been touched by dementia, memory loss, and other related disorders. Healthcare professionals will gain information and insight about these disorders presented from the perspective of patients and families affected by them.
