THE ALZHEIMER'S HIGHWAY...
Along our personal journey on life's highway we can choose to zoom or stop, in the name of love...lend a hand, lend a dollar, lend our time or give directions. What I've learned is that the exits and traffic are never predictable! My personal travel log has not been without its speed bumps and potholes and most important detours! Detours one can never be prepared to navigate, detours that can alter one's life forever. My exit sign said "Your father has Alzheimer's", the detour sign asked "are you ready to parent your parent?" The next eight years were spent navigating this detour, overseeing every aspect of my father's path, and forever changing the course of my own personal journey without regret. Little do we know what's around the next bend in the road. We quickly learn that nothing is forever and as daughters, sons, husbands and wives we must be educated and informed to confront our detours and flexible enough to handle the curves. My hope is that for everyone ever stranded on the side of the Alzheimer's Highway there is a caring volunteer who pulls over, lends a hand, opens their heart and helps lead the way to close the exit ramp to Alzheimer's.
