All Will Be Well
A Memoir of Love and Dementia
“A valuable resource for anyone caring for failing elders.”
About Kim Fowler
“The high desert puts me back together again and calls me forth to write.”
I am pulled to write about the beauty in the land and in the spirit of humans struggling, celebrating their movement through this life. In my writing and my coaching I want to get to know what breathes below the surface that is waiting to be heard, that offers us riddles to be deciphered through dreams and visions. There is power in transparency.
This book is a transparent journey into the changing relationship between me and my parents as a result of Mom’s stroke and devolving into dementia. It is about the damage of secrets held too long and the healing that is possible through their release. It is a similar yet different story, as are all stories of caring for loved ones with dementia.
If we are persistent in creating the conversations that our families usually run from, if we are vulnerable, if we lean into our friends, and if we love ourselves as much as we love the ones we care for, we find our way and may help our family and loved one find theirs.

In extremely compelling words and very personal terms, Kim Fowler conveys the story of her family’s journey to assist her mother during her developing condition of dementia. While Kim’s story is at once unique it also is one that so many families across the country and the world now must face. In telling her tale, Kim brings significant light to the concerns of a daughter now faced with the new role of caretaker for her parent. Kim’s is a touching and moving account.
Beautiful memoir, filled with wisdom, humor, and compassion, for herself and her parents. Vulnerable self-insights, especially as she and her father struggle to support each other and their failing loved one. Beautifully crafted, with a strong yet vulnerable voice.
