Overview
From the pages of Molly Eiderdown s Journal: Memoirs at the Serenity Nursing Home springs the thoughts, feelings, and observations of a woman who writes a new chapter in her own life. At seventy-nine, she enters a nursing home under duress following a heart attack. Forced into this late-life move by her children, who felt concerned about her health and her ability to live on her own, Molly Eiderdown decides to keep a journal to pass the time. She notes on the first page, It is so boring here that I have just decided to write. I have to write BIG so I can read it because my eyes aren t so good, but who cares if I fill up my whole under the bed with notebooks. They ll never find them anyway. No one ever even dusts under there I ll bet. Elaine B. Berrier s Molly Eiderdown s Journal rests upon the author s twenty-seven years of experience working with elders as a nurse in long-term care facilities. This roots the novel in the realities of people who live in nursing homes.
