I wish I could stop _________ from happening.
I wish I could stop dementia from happening. My Mom is 84 years old and slowly slipping away. She has been energetic and happy most of the time, since she went into a facitliy, but she is extremely short on short term memory. Our roles have reversed. Sometimes I grieve that. I feel very fortunate to still have her. It's nice to be on vacation because I am rested & have much more patience with her. The social worker says she may soon have to go to a higher level of care. I don't want that to happen because she likes it so much where she is.
