Dementia care quotes and poems
The other day I helped an elderly lady at Costco, who looked lost and frustrated. She was tiny and all she wanted was some sunscreen. When I was done helping her and ready to walk away, she touched my arm with her tiny hand and said thank you honey for stopping to help an old grandma lady. And to think, all I did was stop. things-that-stop-me-in-my-tracks
Mmm.. I wasn't going to tell you this; but here it goes. One of my mum's relatives is a priest and last at the Christmas party he told everyone to write something that they were thankful for in this year (since we don't have thanksgiving). I was thankful that I knew you throughtout this year.. he got me to tie it to a balloon and let it go.
Enjoying each moment while I still have them.
