I’m Anne!

I’ve been caring for my mom with Alzheimer’s for the last seven years, and there’s one thing I know for certain. Caring for a loved one with dementia = pretty much the hardest thing ever.

I know what it’s like to struggle to find things to keep her busy. To find time for her daily care with all of life’s other obligations. To spend one day feeling her love and kindness and then the next being the object of her anger and suspicions. To be faced with the financial responsibility of providing her care. I know how it feels to be overwhelmed and just want to give up.

I’m coping by finding ways to keep mom happy, calm, and engaged. I’m discovering ways to help her keep bits of independence as long as possible. I’m educating myself on how to change my behavior to manage her hostility and distrustfulness. I’m establishing a financial plan for her care. I’m tackling the overwhelm and increasing my own productivity. I’m determined to stay on top of this and take back my life. I’m doing this. And I know you can, too.
