Poet and blogger Miriam Green writes a moving account of caring for her mother who has advanced Alzheimer's in her first book, "The Lost Kitchen: Reflections and Recipes from an Alzheimer's Caregiver." In the book and on this show, Green shares an honest look at what caregiving entails: compassion, frustration, poignancy, patience, humor and more. Woven throughout the Lost Kitchen are recipes Green collected from her mother and created herself. Each carries a special memory. www.thelostkitchen.org
