A Big Change...

My mom came to live with us almost a year ago.
She was unable to live alone any longer
due to dementia.
As difficult as it was to deal with,
we did the best we could to make her feel comfortable
and take care of her needs.
She never really accepted being here.

Please keep a good thought for Mimi
as she adjusts to her new home.
It's heartbreaking...


  1. Heartbreaking for everyone involved I'm sure. . . . My Mom has entered the "end stages" of COPD ~ I can relate. Guilt, sadness, frustration . . . and yes, heartbreaking, absolutely heartbreaking.

    May she soon adjust to her new home and find peace.


  2. Daisy, I am sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your mother - we experienced Alzheimer's with RMan's mother. It is the most terrible illness for a family to experience - perhaps you are able draw comfort from the fact that your mother doesn't know what is going on. All you can do is continue to give her your love.

  4. My thoughts are with her and you as you all deal with this change. the aging process can be just heart-wrenching. hugs.

  5. Aw. My thoughts and prayers are for your mom. My grandmother had dementia too and it was so difficult to watch and be a part of.
    Praying not only for your mom but for peace and comfort for you too!

  6. You and your mom are in my thoughts and prayers as well. It's so difficult - I too have had experiences. Hugs to you.

  7. Oh Daisy, you've been going through so much too. That's such a difficult and stressful situation. I hope your mom starts to feel more settled soon. My thoughts go out to you and your family.

  8. Thank you all for your support. It means a lot. I know that the peace you are sending our family will come back to you.


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
