Until the Day We Die

Until the Day We Die

“He changes,” Jenny says of her husband Rudy, who has dementia, “and I adapt.” But how can she adapt to his libido-heightened attraction to a new resident at his retirement home? This story, of deeply-challenged love, weaves past and present with tenderness, pain, humour, pathos, and resolve in a plot as unpredictable as the course of dementia itself.
