Dating Dementia is the creation of Nancy Wurtzel, a public relations professional and creative writer, formerly based in Southern California and now happily living in her native Minnesota. Nancy left Los Angeles and moved back to Minnesota to help care for her aging mom, who had Alzheimer’s disease, and subsequently her brother-in-law. Divorced, she asks: Will I stay in Minnesota? How do I balance work, care-giving, a social life and exercise? Can I finally lose that extra 20 pounds? And, most importantly, will I ever have sex again?”
