A caregiver for a parent with Alzheimer’s Dementia needs support.
However, you may not have time to read “The 36-Hour Day” or attend support groups. You need a place to go for resources, solutions, and a quick pat on the back. This is FinalFrontier.
This page is being constructed to contain resources – quick solutions for issues troubling you today. It will also contain narratives from Mom’s journey with Alzheimer’s Dementia. Please reach out and let me know what you need to see here, and I’ll find it and post it.
When Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Dementia, I reached out to the medical team with questions. “How do we deal with this?” “What do we do when this happens?” “Is there a support group?”
That medical team suggested Dad and I get the book “The 36-hour Day” . . . .
These nutballs ACTUALLY thought Dad and I had time to stop care-giving long enough to read a book. HA!
Here and there, however, I was able to squeeze in a therapeutic, short blog post detailing things that happened with Mom. I’m going to share them with you here. If you’re dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease, I want you to be able to use the time with your loved one to show love to them (whether they know who you are or not). It was MY time for saying a very long goodbye, and I will always cherish it.
Here are some of the trials and treasures from that time.
