Dementia Dad: A story about the Caring Relationship by Hannah Miller

I was delighted to receive the mini-comic Dementia Dad by Hannah Miller in the post today. The book is a simple, heart-warming, insightful and empowering piece. With her profound illustrations and humorous text, Hannah manages to paint a portrait of the effects of dementia on daily life. A simple short story says SO MUCH.

We see the absolute love between her parents, the difficulties and fears caused by dementia, and the gentle acceptance of circumstance and the healing power of humor.

It’s absolutely wonderful and heartwarming and I encourage you to purchase a copy at Hannah’s ETSY shop:

I also LOVE her mini comic: Chondromalacia Patella. Hannah shares her journey through knee pain and it’s amazing how she mixes pain with humor and honesty. I am a HUGE fan of confessional work and autobiographical work.

I can’t wait to see more of Hannah Miller’s work!
