A pandemic?!!! Really?? Do you know what that does to a person with dementia? Bernice is lonely and doesn't know what's happening. We have phone calls, "facetime" visits, in person "window" visits, but we can't hug, chat in her room, and most importantly we can't do her hair! Let me tell you, everyone feels better when their hair is done. We did participate in a parade in front of her facility with a decorated car, blaring polka music. We could see her tapping her foot and laughing- well worth the effort.
Bernice turned 85 in October- God Bless her. We miss her, she misses us- my greatest hope is that she remembers us when all of this if over. There is a very good chance that this hope will not come true.
Bernice is now on the highest dose of any"memory" meds out there, so her future is uncertain. She and so many others don't know what's happening to them. They can't understand and are frustrated and scared.
I need your support to do my part! This is my 5th year making a commitment to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
