Publisher's Summary

Understanding non-verbal communication taught by a horse.
Patricia Conoway has created a breakthrough guide to help caregivers connect with their loved ones suffering from Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. She takes us on her journey with her mother Kay who's in the late stages of Alzheimer's, dependent on others for her most basic needs and no longer able to communicate verbally, when her horse, Dream, enters Patricia's life.
Dream had been severely abused by a previous owner, and where others would have given up, Patricia was determined to heal her. In this audiobook, Patricia describes her dual struggles with her mother's steady decline and persistent issues with care facilities while she's going through the slow process of learning her horse's body language.
Eventually, Dream teaches Patricia non-verbal communication by forcing her to watch and listen with all her senses, but primarily the visual, which Patricia translates to non-verbal conversations with her mother who has lost her ability to speak. Patricia's straightforward account of her own frailties, doubts, and eventual success should be recommended listening for anyone who struggles to relate to a person who has lost verbal communication.
