Mother Daughter Drive - Take 2

October 24, 2017


My mom's favorite activity is hands down (even though we have our hands up) . . . . .  is going for a drive. My mom has LOVED going on a drive during her whole bout with Frontotemporal Dementia.


She never knows where she's going.

She never knows where she wants to go,

but she wants to go.

I hear the words "where are we going? multiple times during our drives sometimes. If I ask her where she wants to go. . . . . her answer will be "I don't know".

I'm glad that she has enjoyed going for drives and this is something she has looked forward to. I know there will come a day, where she won't be able to go for a drive anymore. I'm taking advantage of the moments we have now, and I'm grateful for these moments we have now.

I've been taking some video of us on our drives. This is the second mother daughter drive video, that I am sharing with you.

Please keep in mind, all dementia situations are different. Our situation may not be the same as yours or how you think it should be, but this is what works for us. There are reasons why I do what I do, and say what I say. I have learned what works and what doesn't work throughout our journey. My mom is happy and that is all that matters to me.

We dedicate this video to my brother, Jon. Jon is Cindy's son. We speak of him a lot in this video.

Thank you for watching and supporting us on our FTD Journey!

  1. My mom likes to go for drives too, but it is getting harder and harder to get her into the car. So sadly, they happen a little less often these days.
