Caregiving Thanks - Memories of Mama

November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness and Family Caregivers month. It's also the month in which we celebrate Thanksgiving. It's ironic that it's a time to remember when many of our loved ones can't but it's also a time to be thankful... and I am. 

Mama was my caregiver for many years... after all that's what mothers do! The tables turned when she was diagnosed with Dementia and I took over the role of caregiver. I learned from the best because she taught me how to be strong and get through tough times with humor and music. It certainly helped us get through or at least soften our bumpy ride with Alzheimer's.  

Mama wanted her story told, so we've continued to do it through our work as advocates and in our play "Some of These Daze". Even though I became the caregiver, I learned everything I knew about caregiving from Mama, so thank you Mama. 

Thanks for following us. Please share and spread the word...
