Our mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer 3 years ago. Prior to that that we had an intuition there might be something going on with our mom memory. It wasn't until she moved in with her son Albert and his wife Martha, we notice something was not right. After the doctor evaluated our mom, the results came back as Dementia/Alzheimer. Since than our mom has progress from mild stage to middle stage. It seems more toward the end of the middle stage before the late stage of the disease. Our mom can no longer be left alone. She forgets what she did earlier that same day and at times forgets who took care of her that day. What was once taking for granted visiting our mom when we can, we now putting our busy schedule aside to help take care of our mom. Her kids are Danny, Christina, Frances, Albert, Angela, and Rosie. It has changed our lives.
As stated before, my mom lives with me (Albert) and my wife Martha who been such a blessing assisting me and caring for my mom. My brother and sisters are all contributing helping out taking care of her. I am so thankful for them. There is something special when family comes together to help out with situations like ours. I know it's going to get tougher as our mom progresses with her disease. It's an eerie feeling seeing your mom loose reality of her life. I pray God to give me the strength and courage to do what I possibly can for my mom. With the help of my wife and siblings it makes it easier.
Thank you all for your donations, we are gratefully appreciated.
