That conversation was very touching. I am having a similar experience with my own mother who is in the early stages of dementia. She has memory lapses every so often. This has helped to boost my morale that other daughters are having the same problems with their senior mothers.

IF ALL CHILDREN WITH PARENTS AFFLICTED WITH THIS AILMENT COULD SEE THIS VIDEO, IT WOULD GIVE THEM A LOOK INTO THEIR FUTURE AND SEE HOW THIS COULD ALSO AFFECT THEM. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL THE LOVE AND COMPASSION SHOWN HERE TO BE A BEAUTIFUL AND LOVING GIFT FROM GOD, AND NOT HAVE THEM SHUNTED AWAY IN A HOME ONLY TO VISIT WHEN THEIR SCHEDULE ALLOWS.

Julie, I’m sorry to hear of your mom’s diagnosis. I can rtalee, however, to the reusable bags part I constantly forget mine in my car, too. And even though I see them on display in the store I STILL don’t remember until I’m in the middle of checkout. Doh!

What a precious mom and daughter. That was a very special moment for the two of them.
My Aunt has the beginning stages of dementia and I try to be very patient with her when she forgets
and repeats things.
We try our best for the ones we love.

My mother had Alzheimer’s Disease. On the rare days she knew me and said my name, I was so very happy!

This is great, and I’m all for it but: Allowing Progress Thru Processors access will let it pull your proifle information, photos, your friends’ info, and other content that it requires to work. I’m sorry, but that’s a terrible identity flaw and I (and I’m sure many others) can’t participate in it until it’s fixed.

I HAVE WORKED WITH SOME MANY THAT HAD ALZHEIMER;S AND IT SO SAD AT TIMES THEY DONT KNOW WHO THEY ARE. AND CAN;T REMEMBER THEIR FAMILY. THAN AT TIMES THEY KNOW EVERYTHING.WHERE THEY ARE AND CAN TELL YOU ALL ABOUT THEIR FAMILY.I HAVE SEEN FOR MY SELF HOW THIS HURTS THEIR FAMILY;S. THEY DON;T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS HAS HAPPEN TO THEIR LOVE ONES. BUT ALL YOU CAN DO IS JUST LOVE THEM AND SHOW HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO YOU. THIS ALZHEIMER IS A DISEASE. IT TAKES SO MUCH AWAY FROM OUR FAMILY. I PRAY THAT ONE DAY WE HAVE A CURE FOR THIS. BUT RIGHT NOW ALL WE CAN DO IS JUST LOVE AND REPECT OUR LOVE ONE;S WITH THIS DISEASE.

My Mom has alzheimers and is getting progressively worse. I see her all the time so she is still aware who I am but she does not know my sister and I know that hurts Rose. Sometimes she knows her granddaughter but not always. This scares the life out of me that this may happen to me. BUT, as long as I have Mom,I will love her and she will Always be my Momma.
