    I Miss Her

    For the last 20 years of her life, my grandmother suffered Alzheimer's. What should have been  joyous twilight years was robbed by this disease. She did not have an easy life, working hard. My grandmother loved babies and I when my two children were born, I took them down...

    Here I Am!

    My grandmother's fight with Alzheimer's has lasted for years. It mainly affected her ability to speak, as slowly but surely it became harder for her to communicate with us. She remembered all of our faces and could understand us when we spoke to her, but when it came to having...

    Where Have You Been?

    My grandmother is 90 years old. She started really struggling with Alzheimers 3 years ago. She lived with my father until hospitalization was necessary - about 6 months ago. Before she moved into the nursing home - I spent an evening with her. I thanked her for being my rock, my...

    Beginning To Understand Just Now

    Are You In There Somewhere? I Miss You!

    I miss my grandmother very much these days but the saddest thing is I miss her most when I am with her.  I spent many days taking care of her but taking care of her physically seems easy compared to trying to care for her emotional needs. She is just so unhappy and mean. She...

    She had early onset Alzheimer's.

    . I remember talking to her and her beautiful face just nodding because she had no idea what I was saying or who I am but she knew she loved me, she never forgot that. She would just randomly smile at me or wag her finger as she tried to remember who I was..

    Definitely, if you want your relationship to last and be as strong as possible. Looks fade overtime, someone's personality and whom they are will not.
