About my mother’s battle with Alzheimer’s: claudettekulkarni.com/2022/09/

@ClaudetteK I’m sorry to hear you and your family are going through this. I’ve not had anyone close to me suffer with Alzheimer’s, but my brother-in-law had a lot to deal with when his father was affected. When I was helping my mother through various health issues, I found our county had some helpful services to support caregivers. I hope you have something similar.

@GadgetComa Thank you, fortunately we do. My mom’s case manager is incredibly helpful and supportive, and she knows to listen to my dad as well as gently push the necessary decisions and actions. My dad is amazing and I talk to him every day and help where he lets me.

@ClaudetteK Glad to hear you and your dad have this support.

@ClaudetteK this is hard. My family has been through it multiple times, although I’ve not yet been the everyday caregiver. Spouses. Siblings. Parents. I fear it will be me some day.

Hugs. All the hugs.

@feorlen I’m so sorry to hear that. It’s very hard, indeed. I wish for you that you will be spared this.
This is my first experience with Alzheimer’s. It doesn’t run in the family. My grandmother had vascular dementia after suffering a stroke, but that has been the extent of my familiarity with dementia in general.

So many hugs back!

@ClaudetteK I’m so sorry for what your mother and all of you are going through. Alzheimer’s is the worst kind of disease, slowly taking people away over time. The emotion I felt reading this was palpable, so I can only imagine what it’s like to see your loved one suffering for real. My thoughts are with your mother and your family.

@pimoore Thank you so much, Pete. Sometimes I think in some ways it’l is hardest on my dad, but of course for mom it has to be hell. What I can’t shake is how incredibly scary it must be to no longer be able to trust your mind or be in control of your faculties. I have nightmares about it.

@ClaudetteK I'm so gutted and sorry to hear what your mother is going though, I know a friend of mine is going through the same thing with her father having it right now and it's a brutal time.

I'm glad that your mom has th e care and support that she needs and I wish her and your family all the best as it's life changing in most ways.

@joe Thank you, Joe. And please send my best wishes to your friend; I’m not sure it will help but maybe she’ll feel some comfort knowing she’s not alone. It’s an incredibly difficult disease for all involved.

@fabriek Dankjewel. Het is een ontzettende klote-ziekte.
