A journey in time with Alzheimer's

KEEP HOPE ALIVE!

The awful thing about Alzheimer’s is that you’re ALWAYS GRIEVING
Always ……….wishing things would turn around
Always ………..wondering if she’ll remember you
Always……….. making up excuses why she looses stuff
Always ………  feels like a juggling act
Always………. playing along to keep the peace
Always ………. reminding self that she does love you
Always ……….wondering IF YOU’RE making good decisions about her care
Always ……….Always ……….Walking away to keep from arguing, reasoning, lecturing, demanding
Always ……….Always ………. Must  agree, divert, distract, reassure, reminisce, ask, , praise
Always ……….Always ………..Keep Hope Alive!

One thing I remember the psychiatrist saying in our follow-up visit from The Behaviour Unit was how important it is  to:   keep hope alive.
