4 thoughts on “Lessons We Learn from Caregiving for Our Loved Ones With Dementias and Alzheimer’s Disease

  1. Thanks for the reblog, Kay! It’s oddly comforting to know that we all share that loss of a sense of purpose once our caregiving days change or are over. Your mom, though, will need you more and more and my hope is that not only will some of that sense of purpose be fulfilled through walking through the rest of the journey with her, but also with the great work you are doing through your website and blog with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia advocacy. Best wishes, my friend!

    1. Thank you. I am mindful that my job is a little different. The overwhelming crush of my Dad’s critical care when he was diagnosed with cancer brought a whole new level of intensity to the my role. The feeling of failure and guilt shrouded me the first few weeks after his death. I really liked your comment about the only way to learn these things was to experience them — my life will forever be changed. As you have shared before — I don’t regret a moment. Happy New Year.

  2. Each post is better than the last, I am so glad that I found this site. Thank you, Kay, you have helped me more than you’ll ever know.
