UTICA – A local author is sharing her story about her father’s unconditional love for her mother, who has dementia.
Catherine Cominsky has written a book, titled “Breakfast Memories: A Dementia Love Story,” which chronicles her father’s care for her mother.
Cominsky, who writes under the name Kate Hanley, will hold a book signing and discussion on January 22, 2020 at the Jewish Community Center in Utica. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. Those interested in attending are asked to call (315) 733-2343 to reserve a seat.
The book was published in August 2019 by Green Writers Press. Cominsky says a portion of proceeds go to dementia support groups. For more information, visit www.breakfastmemories.com.
Cominsky describes the book as a story of what she saw and felt as a daughter when her mother experienced dementia, and how her father's love through their 65 years of marriage and courtship proved the definitive weapon against this disease.
