Publisher's Summary

By 2050, nearly 115 million people in the world will have Alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. But when our memories fade, what do we become - a shadow of our old selves or somebody new?

After losing her grandmother to Alzheimer's, writer Anu Silfverberg travels to see the future of dementia care. In the Netherlands, a new kind of care home lets patients live in their own pasts. Here, you'll find gated gardens and a pub for the demented along with a stylized class system designed by a team of consultants. A surprise lesson: Dementia isn't a walking death after all. It's another way of living.

The Vanishing is a cross between essay and reportage, produced by Long Play, a publisher of investigative long-form journalism based in Finland. Anu Silfverberg is an award-winning journalist and author from Helsinki, Finland.
