A Special Visitor at Memory Care - Anything is Possible

December 18, 2018

We had a special visitor visit Cindy at memory care last week. It was one of Cindy's best friend that she met during her working days, back in the early 2000's. Cindy would call her "Debbie, Debbie, Debbie". 

Debbie came to visit Cindy, knowing that Cindy, wouldn't remember her. Debbie wanted to visit anyways.

I was nervous of how it would go because my mom has been different lately. It went perfectly and there was no reason to feel nervous. Debbie came in with love in her heart and handled Cindy perfectly. My heart was filled this night, seeing the caring love, that was shown to us.

Debbie showed Cindy pictures of both of them together. Debbie and her husband sang beautiful Christmas songs to us. They drew in a crowd of others that live at memory care, too.

This was a memorable night.

I learned that . . . . 

If you open up your heart with love, anything is possible.

Thank you, Debbie, Debbie, Debbie, & Randy, for making our night by bringing in Christmas cheer and love!

It's Beginning To Look A lot Like Christmas!

December 03, 2018

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Everywhere we go!

The Christmas tree is up.

The Christmas decorations are hung. 

Snow is falling. Snow is everywhere we look. On the ground, roads, and rooftops.

Christmas lights are up all around. 

Christmas music is playing on the radio. Christmas movies are playing on the tv.

The gloves & scarf have been brought out for the first time.

Life with Dementia and Christmas time seems so different, almost 5 years into Cindy's diagnosis. It's not quite the same. We try to make this time of year, as well as we can, for Cindy. Just being together, laughing and smiling, is enough for us.

We've been able to watch the snow fall, listen to Christmas music on the radio, look at the decorations, and look at the Christmas lights on the houses with Cindy.

Cindy might not know that it's Christmas time and December. She might not know the meaning of this time of year. That is okay. We hope she can just feel the love that we have for her and we only hope that we can bring a smile to her face.

Hold your loved ones tight this holiday season and smile & laugh together. That is what we will be doing.

We wish you all a 

Happy Holiday Season 

Full of Love, Smiles & Laughter!
