Elderly Parents Dementia

by Debbie
(Overland Park, KS)

I try to think of funny stories about my mom. Also, and how she would cook GERMAN meals. And her famous sayings that would make us laugh.


I also do things for that make her feel pampered and it helps her to relax. Tell funny stories about our pets and bring her a burger or sandwich that she enjoys.

And I pray a lot for all of us. Also, painting the inside of the house and clearing out a lot of stuff. I am still lost and my life seems to belong.

So Much Love in All You Do!
by: Anonymous

Your few words convey to us how loving and thoughtful you are to your mother. That is inspiring to me.

When my mom says hurtful things it's hard to be like you are, but I am trying more to let go of my self pity and find the joy that no one can take away from me, when I forget my little self and do as you are doing: loving the greater Self, in others.
Thank you.

Hi Debbie,
You sound a little lost and very sad, there is not much more you can do for you mom.

Your letter was very brief but those few words said it all.

Life sometimes seems hopeless and your comfort from pray I hope helps you.

My mother died not knowing me she was so confused but I think of the times when my mother was herself and the closeness we had for each other.
God bless you
