Like most of you I’m kind of stuck in my house. It really changes your perspective on life and how fragile it is. After this I will never take for granted anything. Like just going out to get groceries again. Now if you dare go out you have to wear a mask and gloves and when you get home you have to go right to the sink and wash your hands. It has taught me to value everything I have cuz it can be taken so quickly.
It’s very hard but it’s not as bad as some people who have lost their love ones to this terrible disease so I’m thankful to God for that. All my family are ok so I’m very thankful for that.
The hardest part of this whole thing has been not being able to see my mom. I haven’t seen her since March 9th and its been very difficult. I’ve video chatted and talked with her on the phone but that’s not the same as actually seeing her. I miss her so and I miss my dad too who passed away last October. I’m trying to get through all of this like all of you.
I hope you are all safe and secure and I hope this comes to a end soon. For now that’s all be thankful for everyday that God gives us and never take life for granted again.
Take Care. Love to you all.

I am a dementia daughter
My mom has dementia and I am her
Even though she doesn’t know it
It’s been a journey like no other
I wouldn’t wish it on anyone
To see your own mom getting
Worse and worse by the day.
And all you can do is sit back and watch
Her fade away
More and more
It tares your heart out to see the one
Who you always depended on change
So severely you don’t even know
Who they are anymore that nothing they says
Makes any sense at all just like a two year old just gibberish
It’s devastating enough to take
Your breath away!
All you want to do is scream cry til you can’t anymore
And all you want is to stop and let you off this
Rollercoaster that you’ve been on for
That’s a dementia daughter!

I wrote this poem. My mom is in a nursing home and I visit with her quite often. When I visit the people there look so sad because hardly any of their family visits them. Have a great day!
These are the people
That need us the most
They are our fathers, mothers
But they have been placed
Like they were erased
Nobody comes to
You can see it on their face
The loneliness and pain
All they want is for someone
To love them and to show
Them they care.
All they might need is a smile.
These are the forgotten ones.
