Still working on being great caregiver, wife and mother. While being Free.

Thank you. To all the great comments, I only know how to write from my hear. This is all a learning process, as is life. The hardest thing I have ever done is tell my mother she is in the beginning stages of Dementia and Vascular Dementia. She and I have worked in and around the medical field for years. Her words to me were heartbreaking ” Just knock me in the head and take me on out. I don’t want to be mean to anybody”. So after many tears, I did the only thing I know to do. I hug her and told her ” We are in this together and I love you”. God has always been my strength and we are going to give this to him. ¬†While Mom and I enjoy our precious days together.

I am research different articles on my journey. Please join me on Facebook and Twitter. There are some awesome articles to be seen for all of our health.

And Thanks for following and please leave a comment. I do enjoy reading them and replying. Let’s all live free and frugal.

Learning to help a Parent that is showing signs of Dementia

Time has been tight. I have just taken my mother to the doctor to test for Dementia. One thing I learned today was many of the medications she has been taking for several years for other health problems is causing this memory loss.  I know she is ageing, but well hate to see our loved ones going through these issues. Wish us luck on our journey. I am lucky to be free to take care of her.
