The story of a family helping their mother to face dementia and learning to love each other again in the process.

When the vibrant, beloved Miss Peggy began the agonizing descent into the “darkness” of dementia, her family faced what an estimated 35.6 million people around the world live with each day. “Moving Miss Peggy: A Story of Dementia, Courage and Consolation” by Robert Benson is an intimate look at what dementia means for a family – how do you organize your mother’s new life, how do you move her from her cherished home… how do you come to terms with the fact that the woman who, as Benson writes, “once seemed to hold the whole world in her hands, now does not know the day of the week?” With his signature style, Benson’s artistic touch lends a warmth and softness to a harsh reality in this powerful story.

The story of a family helping their mother to face dementia and learning to love each other again in the process.

“I am not ever going to get to go home, am I?," she said one day. This is the story of moving Miss Peggy to a new place to live, to a new way of life, to a new kind of reality. All of which became necessary because Miss Peggy had begun to live a life colored by dementia. All of us who love her have begun to live that new life with her. Some of that story is here as well.

In Moving Miss Peggy we also meet the story of siblings, grown apart over years, with nothing in common except for a mother who in wrestling through her own challenges gave each grown child the gift of a deeply felt reunion, long years after any of them suspected there was a possibility of reconciling grace.

Written with grace, candor and bittersweet humor, Moving Miss Peggy tells a story that many others are now facing, bringing strength and wisdom and inspiration to readers. We learn (and learn again) along with Miss Peggy and her family some of the very basics for living life well.
