Caring for someone with dementia is a journey. When you first get on board, you know absolutely nothing. You get directed to various websites, organisations and if you’re lucky will have someone in your corner who can help.
But if you’re like me, you’re left alone to get on with it. You learn as you go.
So I’m sharing our journey with you – what we learn and practical advice on what works in the hope it helps someone else. I hope you’ll join us because for me it was tough.
I thought I could handle anything, little did I know. Being a carer is a different ball game. It started with a fight.
Inspiration & Advice
“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
― Maya Angelou
Alzheimer’s disease is my mum’s cloud, some days it rains, some days the cloud clears and reveal wonderful sunshine with a rainbow.
As a carer, you can be that rainbow through your actions. My biggest blind spot is really knowing what mum is going through.
So I’m inspired every day by those who share their lives caring for their loved one and those living with dementia. They help keep my rainbow true.
