Wow! That's exactly how visits with my mom go. She's been in a nursing home for the last several years. She knows I'm her daughter, but doesn't remember my name. She asks about people who have long ago departed this life. Well written. God bless!

A very realistic story with authentic dialogue. I'm assuming you've had experience with this disease...you managed to put together a scenario that I witnessed many times working in the nursing home industry my whole career. Alzheimer's is an insidious disorder that cripples the person's mind, and the family members emotions.

Excellent piece, I felt as if I was back at my job watching the mother and daughter interaction.

God bless~

Oh wow this is such a powerful story. I know it's a dilemma many kids are facing today. I agree, though, sometimes it's kinder not to inflict pain than to be totally honest. I've had roommates in the hospital with dementia and they can be so sweet in morning, but turn mean and nasty at night. We need stories like this to help people understand a day in the life...Well done. Congratulations on ranking 11th in Masters and 13 overall!! HAPPY DANCE!!
