Kester  Schlenz - Mum is Losing her Grip


Even in the final years of life everything is easier with a little humour!

Everything was still OK at Mum's 80th birthday in the restaurant of the Waldesruher Hof hotel – and now? "How are you, Mum?" "Bloody awful. I fell on my face at home." For her son Kester and his siblings this is the beginning of an odyssey through doctors' practices, insurances, hospitals and old-age homes. Traute Schlenz does not feel comfortable there – "There are only old people living here." But she bravely fights on in her own inimitable rough-and-ready way and – "Fuck you, Nursing Home" – with her rollator manages to get back on her feet again.

A book of encouragement for all concerned, disarmingly funny and touchingly candid!
