Our Gift for Dementia Caregivers: Free Programs, Year-round

Year-Round Support, Our Gift for Family Caregivers
Year-Round Support, Our Gift for Family Caregivers
We’ve updated the information kiosk near our 202 Haverhill Rd. mailbox, to include a more direct message of love and hope: For Dementia Caregivers! Free-of-Charge Year-round Programs!

Our survivor’s mission is born of being dementia caregivers to my mom, Margaret, who lived with FrontoTemporal Degeneration (FTD) from age 60-67. It is still the hardest thing I’ve had to do in my life to date. My spouse, Karl, was a life-saving presence during this most difficult time.

Tonight at 11:45pm, we remember my mom, Margaret. It is the 10th Anniversary of her death (d. 12/24/08). She passed away on Christmas Eve night…10-years ago. We’re also missing my Uncle Mal (d. 9/28/18) for the holidays this year.

Transitioning to “a new normal,” without certain loved ones at the table, is a reality we all face sooner or later. Let us hold close the ones now present.

Moving forward with a listening heart,
vision, inquiry, and action,
~ Mary
