True, genuine, gut wrenching yet optimistic
I love listening! Dementia has plateaus and declines
The declines are the hardest of all.
In some way I feel unprepared for what lies ahead
Listening to this is something I can totally relate to
Thank you fir being out there with your journey and your feelings
Your mom must have been a special lady!
Glaring problems exist in how dementia persons receive care
Keep talking if you have the time!
