join their memories

A sad poem, but true.

That is the one thing I would dread, to lose my faculties and hence, independence. A difficult illness for everyone involved and requires much patience. I admire carers very much.

Working with Alzheimer’s patients, we were taught to enter THEIR reality, rather than try to get them to ours…..nice write

I wondered if I conveyed what you wrote in the haiku….thanks for the reply. I worked with the elderly for 34 ish years as DON of a private owner facility and then on the locked unit at a board run facility for Veterans and their spouses…for anyone with a condition that had confusion as a symptom.
Thanks for your comment.
