Author: Shelley Dawn Siddall
Title: Demented Dementia: How not to care for a loved one in a nursing home.
Terry used to be a good nurse.
There was a time in her life when advocating for seniors with dementia was her passion. She gave her patients the dignity they deserved! But Terry’s career is circling the drain. She’s fallen off the wagon again and is given a choice. Go undercover or give up her nursing license forever.
The first part of Terry’s assignment seems simple enough. Find out who was stealing drugs at the Pleasantside Care Home. No problem. Terry knew the computer program inside out and could follow a digital trail. Plus she could call on her own secret irregulars. Everyone underestimated the patients, but Terry knew they were surprisingly good sources if you knew how to talk with them.
The second part of her assignment was more complicated. Terry had to discover why the patients were living longer than normal. The unusual statistics generated by the care home gave Terry a sliver of hope. Despite the thefts at Pleasantside, could the nursing care be spectacular? Could Terry become the caring nurse she used to be?
Suddenly her life is threatened. This time Terry’s choice isn’t as easy. Does she stop seniors from dying or does she save her own life?
If you like fast-paced medical thrillers and unlikely heroes, then you’ll enjoy Shelley Dawn Siddall’s novel told by characters working in a care home and from the imagined viewpoint of those with dementia.
