• Kelli Taylor @keenertaylor- 0) My parents have been married for 34 years. My mom is in the final stages of
young onset dementia (diagnosed 5 years
ago at 53). My dad cares for her full-time.
She doesn't always remember his name
but she knows she is safe with him. If
that's not true love, I don't know what is.

    • Dementia is one of if not the saddest disease out there, you literally watch a person you love lose themselves over the course of weeks/months/years and you know there’s nothing you can do to stop it

    • Dementia scares the shit out of me. The fact that I can grow up and live a fulfilling life only to forget everything right at the very end is fucking terrifying, and it’s probably even worse having to watch it happen to someone else.

    • Dementia is super sad. My great grandpa started to suddenly get aggressive towards certain people and he would forget a lot of things that you told him not too long before. He was in the hospital for a while and they refused to diagnos him with something. They thought he was just being belligerent

    • we need to be putting so much more funding into curing dementia and alzheimers. You don’t realize how awful it is until you have to watch it happen to someone you love. They just wither away and turn into a husk, forgetting who you are, not loving you anymore.

Now, at 96, my grandma has late-stage dementia and just survived (1/?)

Not because it's frustrating to deal with the erratic behaviors, but because they're often scared and sad. They'll be asking where their parents are and worrying (1)
