Growing old may at times seem cruel but Bernadette Smallwood offers a tender, alternative view of enduring love and friendship even when the mind is not what it once was. Her story, Around the Corner, is a collection of vignettes set in an aged care home. It focuses on an aged movie star plagued with dementia, her visiting husband, and another aged resident. Each vignette can be read separately or as a connected series. This is a gentle story which will surely resonate with those that are aged, who have aged family and friends, or those who work as carers for the aged.

Bernadette Smallwood is a writer of fiction and poetry.  She is community minded and family focused, and enjoys participating in local art projects.  To date, Bernadette has spent most of her career working in education developing the skills and potential of students.  From her personal experience, Bernadette appreciates the fragility of ageing and that of cognitive disruption.  In this her first book, Bernadette writes of lifelong love, changing relationships and the significance of friendship.

  • Conversation starter: This story supports discussions about ageing, dementia, aged care, support and transition.
  • Beautiful & attractive: This memorable love story is complemented by an attractive cover and beautiful artwork.  The perfect gift.
  • Love story: When the mind and body give way, the heart still feels love. This story captures love’s essence.
  • Moments in time: Written as a collection, each vignette can be read separately or as a connected story.
