I get lovely letters everyday from caregivers with stories about life with their loved ones. The kind of stories that uplift your spirits, cheer your heart and make you know that it’s all worthwhile. All the struggles and the learning curve necessary to care for someone with Alzheimer’s is all for good.
After my mom passed away, I was so angry at Alzheimer’s and Dementia and Cognitive Decline that I didn’t think I’d ever get over it. But in a few weeks time, I was remembering the good times Mom and I enjoyed, despite Alzheimer’s. I thought of the times we giggled about some slip of her memory (or mine) that brought us to laughing so hard we cried.
And then, I began this blog. As I retold more and more of those wonderful and funny experiences Mom and I had– the sad memories began to fade..
Sharing is good for you! It lightens the burden and eases the mind. And we hope you’ll share a a few of your stories with us! If you’re a caregiver or loved one or family member of someone with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, we’d love to hear your story.
It can be about how you cope, how you struggle, how you won a battle; or simply the story of everyday issues that arise for someone with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or any sort of cognitive decline.
