A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Surviving Sundowners

Inevitable … full moon … sundowners … Alzheimer’s spoon
Patience … burden ‘n stress … shouldered … staff suppressed
Securing the day … pill by pill … step by step … meal by meal
Compassion … nerves of steel … caregiver’s strength … surreal
Corralling to one spot … harder than dancing … French gavotte
Inescapable avenue… survival mode … makes curfew.
