My 17 year old daughter dating 20 year old man
She is entering the latter stages of dementia and has already lost so much cognitive ability.
Even with all the research and focus on Alzheimer’s, there is no cure and not even effective treatment or drugs that will slow the progression of this elusive disease.
In fact, with the aid of a walker, Mummy strides up and down the halls in her care center — sometimes for hours.
When she is walking the halls, Mummy often appears to have a purpose and a destination in mind. Up close, it is immediately apparent Mummy is locked into a prison from which there is no parole.
When I do pray, it is always about my mother who is living with Alzheimer’s disease.
Even so, for the past several years I often find myself praying.
Simon Hi Simon, Thank you so much for reading my blog and for your comment.
I know so many of us can relate to your feelings…I hope you can forgive yourself at some point.
Before my dad showed signs of memory loss, Mummy had been the primary caregiver for her own mother who had some form of dementia.
Then, she managed the care of her brother, a lifelong bachelor, who had probable Alzheimer’s.My mom cries constantly and lashes out at my grandfather, and the stress was so intense I think it contributed to her breast cancer diagnosis last year. I was relieved to see him comfortable in his hospital bed in a deep sleep surrounded by family because it was the way he had wanted to go, right? For at least 3 years he has been wasting away on their couch.
