Hopeful Story about Alzheimers

Here is an uplifting story about life with Alzheimers for those of you who have a loved one challenged with this disease.

Last night, when Tom and I were with Mom, several of the CNAs, nursing staff, etc. came in to say goodbye to Mom. One staff member even stayed one hour beyond her shift. They all kissed her, rubbed her face, held her hand and said their goodbyes. One of the staff members had bathed her earlier and placed a set of rosary beads around her hands. There was a washcloth placed a few times on her head and her mouth was rubbed with Vaseline.

One staff member shared a story about how Mom was so helpful to her friend, Angie. Angie was admitted to Menorah Park one year ago in January. She was scared and they matched her up with Mom since Mom had been there for a while. Angie is blind. When Angie couldn't see her food, Mom handed it to her and helped her eat. She handed Angie her beverages. Mom helped Angie walk as well (when Mom wasn't using a walker). Mom had become Angie's "eyes."

It was also reported that Angie and Mom were "night owls" and stayed up past 10 pm watching TV on the couch. Mom would also fall asleep and place her head on Angie's shoulder...every night.

Angie was devasted in the last week since Mom became frail. She kept calling "Rosie, Rosie" and asked where is my Rosie?

I find comfort in this relationship between Angie and Mom. And, Mom had purpose in life even when you begin to question what kind of a life can be in an Alzheimers Unit. Mom adjusted well and she was well loved by a lot of people at Menorah Park and she managed to find a role for herself.

 

Rest in Peace, Mother

 

Love, 

Lisa
