About Mom's Brain

Mom's Brain is a finalist in the Best Senior Living Awards 2014 in the Best Blogs by Individuals.

This is an online journal of one daughter’s experience as a caregiver for her mother, diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in November 2005. Blogger Emily Caldwell originally started it as an anonymous journal, but eventually started posting photos of her mother and her family. She wanted readers to feel like they know her mother, and if they do know her, to be able to see photos of her everyday life. Along the way, she realized there's nothing to hide -- and there's no shame associated with Alzheimer's disease. While at times her mother's behavior can be upsetting and emotions run high, there's also humor. The unexpected is the normal, and Emily's goal is to share the authentic journey with her readers.
