Our team is walking in memory of our Grandma Rose Weller.
Grandma Weller passed away in 2008 due to complications with Dementia. At the end of her life Grandma was admitted to a Hospice care center. That was one of the hardest decisions we had to make. We had kept her at home for as long as we possibly could, however, when she would no longer sleep in her own bed because it was no longer "her" bed and would only sleep on the couch because she was "tired of putting out the young lady whose bed she was sleeping in" we knew we could no longer put off making that decision. She was constantly asking us when we were going to take her "home" and we were afraid that during the night she would simply leave and we would not know it until the next morning.
One of the hardest things to deal with in life is watching someone you love forget who you are. That is why I now walk to help the Alzheimer's Association raise funds for research.
