Over 5.3 million people are diagnosed with dementia in the US and over 24 million worldwide.  These numbers may mean nothing to us unless we personally experience the impact this dis-ease has on the people around us.

My mother has symptoms of dementia.  One of the most difficult things to do is to stand by while your loved one(s) experience the symptoms of this dis-ease.  It is important to step into the shoes of the people who experience this dis-ease and have love and compassion for them.

This Mother’s Day, take a moment and appreciate all the Mothers, especially those who are experiencing the effects of dementia.

Love Me! 

My world has been turned upside down. 

I often do not know where I am. 

Whose house is it?

Who am I?

What has happened to me?

I wake up and go to bed fearful, always fearful.

Things are so complicated!

I love peace and tranquility.

Why do people around me get upset and angry at me?

I just do not remember things.

I feel the tension around me and I do not know why.

I just want to be peaceful and loved!

Talk to me with simplicity, dignity and love.

Touch and hold me often.

Like a mother loving a child.

Help me feel secure and safe in this world I am unable to remember.

All I want is to be loved and know everything will be OK.

My heart goes out to you. This is a difficult challenge for your dad and you. I have learned the least stressful way  for me is to enter their world and accept them the way they are.
