J. Stewart Schneider, a politician, a police dispatcher, a cop, a radio host, a prosecutor, a published technical writer, a computer programmer, a performance musician and recording artist, a Christian minister, and at times, a bread truck driver, and a door-to-door salesman, has completed his new book "An Old Lion Roars at Dementia": a gripping and potent collection of thoughts and reflections.
Schneider states, "When I was a young man, I walked a mental path of smooth macadam with few, if any, tripping hazards. I didn't stride, for I have never been that confident, but I walked upright, admiring my surroundings. Every thought which entered my consciousness brought with it a legion of other connected memories so that my mental environment was a place of wondrous variety.
"Then came age and vascular dementia. Now, my mental environment is sparse, emptier, and unremarkable. No more does one thought summon others. No more am I reminded of pleasanter times by some passing vision. If I am to speak, I must speak now."
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Schneider's stirring tale is more than a memoir; it's the memory of a man diagnosed with vascular dementia. The disease has robbed him of his mental acuity but not his sense of humor. It's his roar at dementia, the beast that stalks the elderly and robs them of their memories. His hope is that his experiences may help others face their own challenges, both personal and professional.
Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase "An Old Lion Roars at Dementia" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
