Dementia in the Family

I wrote this for you, because I am not only the owner of Choice Dementia I’ve been where you are.

 

My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2001 and at the beginning it wasn’t too bad at all.  At first it was just a word here or there then it went on to not being able to stay in a conversation, then it was a matter of judgement and safety and he lost his driver’s license. Then he didn’t know my name.

 

 

 

 

As the disease progressed the changes in my dad were scary and mortifying: who would have thought a daughter would be changing the personal undergarments of her dad? This strong gentle man who had the answer to all my questions all my life, was floundering and so upset with himself that we were both brought to tears many times. The disease robbed me of this great man, without so much as a bye, your left. Some days I was so angry, sad, and scared of doing or saying the wrong thing, and so overwhelmed. I know I am not alone with my feelings. I have dedicated myself to being there for the caregivers and their families because I know all too well what it means, and the consequences of doing it alone.


It is a fact that by doing it all alone you put your health and well being at high risk, if you had a heart attack who then would look after your loved one?

 

As we approach World Alzheimer's Day, I will be sharing some information on our Facebook page daily. Please follow along and share any comments.
