A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Has …To Be

You prowl …checking things out
Looking …for an out …no doubt
Your peers …a bit strange …deranged
You jump a mile …they’re in your way
Suspicions grow …as does the day
Delusions …haunting …you’re  ajar
You have no idea … where you are
Then you say …‘this is not for me ‘
I smile …I frown …has …to be

Mom’s been in the secure unit at the Nursing Center …over a week now .   I’m grateful for the caring staff,  they are sensitive to her needs.  She actually says Hi Sis, glad you’re here.  Awesome.  When I leave, she peers through the small window in the door and waves to me with her fingers, brings me tears every time!

  1. Hopefully it will become easier as time goes by, for you. Your mom sounds she’s settled in OK?
