A huge THANK YOU…

 I can’t tell you how much I enjoy sharing information, stories, adventures and life experience with all you kind people.

Thank you for helping me get the word out on helping and taking care of our elderly and those diagnosed

with Alzheimer’s/Dementia.  In hopes that I help many – I will constantly “pay it forward”……Thanks for all

the comments and encouragement !

Thank you Dementia Journeys – “Slam that phone receiver….”

Thank you Dementia Journeys – “Slam that phone receiver….”

It is OK to feel frustrated to the point, as I did, of actually wanting to take the phone receiver and slam it against the kitchen wall

until it broke. I did not know if I could handle ONE more phone call from my Mother – after 17 calls already for the night….not just tonight, every night, every day – 7 days a week.  I just broke down and wept standing in the middle of the kitchen floor….God help me – what was I going to do?

Caregivers – slam the phone receiver against wall, it is OK…

Caregivers – slam the phone receiver against wall, it is OK….

Thank you to “Dementia Journey” for sharing my frustrating words.  I am honored.

It took me a while to finally understand that it was not my Mother speaking, it was her disease.  In the throes

of nightly phone calls, however, somehow it did not matter.  I was spent, exhausted and at the time, had no idea what to do.
