A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Maintaining dignity

Anchoring hope … ties that bind
Clearing paths … tangles unwind
Difficult … keeping distance ‘n care
Intoxicating … abyss … beware
Tormented … sanity … hides away
Light-headed … no reason to stay
Persistent … hope … pushes on
Determined to cope … into the dawn
Joy in the moment … loving embrace
Being needed … encourages haste
No place on earth … better to be
Maintaining … grace ‘n dignity.
