Re: Walking

Nina,

I find with this disease it is always a wait and see situation. She is able to walk pretty good with the walker but trying to get her to use it is the challenge. But all you can do is hope for the best. It is so sad seeing her the way she is now. My mom is like a lost soul. It tears my heart into pieces. You know you don't want them to pass away but you don't want them to be bedridden and not able to feed themselves. What a horrible situation to be in for the person with dementia and the people who care for them. It is so hard to see and the sad part is there is nothing you can really do to change the way things are at the moment. I always wonder if she knows things are happening to her or not because you can't ask her. It is very hard for me because I would confide in her for everything. May I find strength to carry on.

Thank you for replying to my post and have a lovely week ahead.

Love Elaine
