Denver, CO, August 02, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- When Taylor Hulett, a twenty-five year old professional photographer, walked into Applewood Our House, a residential home for Alzheimer’s or dementia patients, little did he know his life would derail from his chosen path.
Hulett’s book chronicles the emotional life stories of six, Denver-based Applewood Our House residents as their diseases progress. Written in a refreshing style and accompanied by expressive photos, Hulett captures challenges of dealing with changing lives due to unrelenting memory loss - and, readers sneak a glimpse through the window of possibility.
You see, Hulett realized one thing - his words couldn’t be about Alzheimer’s, the disease. His book couldn’t be about symptoms, what to do, or how to do it. No, it had to reach deeper. It had to be about how family members feel. How they cope. How they stay strong. When interviewing the individuals introduced in his book, he realized those afflicted with Alzheimer’s or dementia lose their connections as the diseases strengthen their grip. They have families - a wife, or husband. Kids. Grandkids. Slowly, however, memories of them fade and connections sever, leaving them without the joy of belonging to someone. Something.
Hulett’s book is about raw, unrelenting emotion.
