Welcome to my bittersweet blog. My mom, Esther, is 83 years old now, and has had Alzheimer's for at least 8 years, and probably longer than that. We have traveled through many phases, problems and new experiences. Throughout this journey, I've constantly found myself thinking "I wish someone had told me that before!"
I've found that a lot of the things that a patient and family are expected to know and understand, are not clearly explained as we go. And probably, I could have done a much better job of advocating and caring for my mom if I had been aware of how these things work. I figure that I'm probably not the only one.
Thanks for visiting!
