In talking with other caregivers, I realize all the more keenly how incredibly blessed I was to have an amazing support system. In a recent post, I (re)shared with my readers how my loving church family came alongside me to help me in caring for my sweet mom. Today I am (re)sharing another note that I wrote and published on Facebook in 2017–which was the year mom’s Alzheimer’s disease dramatically advanced.
This is a longer journal post, but I hope you’ll take a few minutes of your time to click on the link below and read it.
Last night there were ten people gathered in my living room for our weekly small group Bible study. I was struck by the fact that every single person in that room had somehow been involved in the care of someone they loved who had Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia.
Every. Single. Person.
If your life has not yet been touched by someone with memory loss, I’m reasonably certain that my readers know someone else whose world has been rocked by the diagnosis of dementia in the life of someone they love. It is my prayer that my journey with mom will provide ideas for other caregivers and that this post, in particular, will remind all of us to look for practical ways to bless and help a road-weary caregiver.
