Mom turned 64 today. I didn't go visit due to Emerson not feeling well & Mark being out of town. There is a part of me that is being critical because I didn't find a way to go. The other part of me says that she won't know the difference of going on Friday and that its okay. Honestly speaking, this is where I spend a lot of my head space when it comes to this care partner role I'm in. I feel like there is this constant struggle between being a mom and caring for mom. When I was at the children's museum with E on Friday I watched as a mom (probably around my age) interacted with her little guy and her mom. She would get so excited as he would do something new and say, "Mom, look at that! Can you believe how he is growing?" They kept catching my eye... I will never know what that is like because I will never have my mom in that capacity. Before becoming a mom I would have said that wouldn't matter. Before doing some work within the enneagram and understanding more about myself I would have said that wouldn't matter. Truth is... it does matter & it hurts like hell that I don't have her. If you have your mom in your life & she is able to be there for you (whether over the phone or in person), will you do something for me? Tell her that you appreciate her. Make an additional phone call just for that. Take her out to lunch. Just love on her a little extra. #indianapolisfamilyphotographer #indianapolisfamily #carepartner #dementia #dementiaawareness #endalz #blankstare #motherhood #mendingmotherhood #indianapolisadoptionphotographer #storyteller #beautyinpain #caregiving #alzheimersawareness #alzheimersawareness #alzheimers #losingmom #joyfulexposures #joyfulexposuresphotography

She so inspires me daily! She’s my hero! I’m her biggest fan! Even with dementia, she is the strongest woman I know ❤️ . And boy does she love her TV Guides 🥰 . Mom was having some lower back pain yesterday so I went to Walmart to buy her a back brace, and though her neck is a little stiff, she said her back feels better . And the TV Guide surely help make her feel better ... what do you think? (And me, of course lol)

I live a couple of blocks from my moms house so my pups love when I say “Wanna go to grams house?” I remember, before dad passed, I used to take him bread, ice cream, donuts and candies not knowing I was hurting him. Now I take mom brain octane and Keto snacks! #ketoforbrainhealth #ketofordad #ketoforlife #keto #ketogenic #brainhealth #brainoctane #walkswithmydog #ketoforalzheimers #ketofordementia #alzheimers #alz #dementiaawareness #alzheimersawareness #lewybodydementia #lbd #ketodogs #ketodogmom @bulletproof @perfectketones #ketoaf #lchf #ketogenicliving #ketocoachingwithkatie

It's true, we are never the same person when we enter into marriage...we grow, we mature, we change and Bambi / David, is certainly different now but I remember how he would wait for me for 6 hours in the car when I was in college (I said I finished at 11am but I didn't come out til 5pm and he waited without grumbling) who spurred me on to leave the National Health Service and start a business which we still have today, who encouraged me when we were paying two mortgages and told me to never give up hope, who helped me get to where I am today, who prayed for me when I needed prayer and tenderly hugged me when I needed a hug, who forgave me when I shouldn't have been forgiven. If the tables were turned, his patient character would have stood tall and he would fight for me as he always did.... so here I stand with our beautiful kids in tow, wishing my lovely husband a very, very blessed birthday. Health and healing are yours in Jesus name! . . . . #birthday #manoffaith #husband #family #bestdad #besthusband #familyman #patience #kindness #ftd #dementiaawareness #endalz #earlyonset #dementia #alzheimers #alzheimersawareness #postivevibes #frontotemporaldementia

Missing my beautiful Nanny Dot for who she used to be. I have always idolised her. And I still adore her as she is, even though she is so different now. The words in this poem describe it perfectly for me and I will continue to express myself this way to keep raising awareness and share the love. Afterall, Nanny adored being treasured. #dementiaawareness #eternallove #mylittletreasure

‘Woodstick Candle Holder’ -Great Sensory Craft experience with the residents. We used elastic bands and double sided tape to keep the sticks around the glass. Then painted it with ‘snow’ white acrylic. Then everyone chose 1-2 different style of ribbons and wrapped them around the sticks. It was a great experience .I gave my my class big branches because I wanted them to break it into pieces, it was easy for everyone as the branches were all dry and it was also a great sensory experience ,they all enjoyed the texture and the smell of the wood. Swipe through the pictures to see the process.Definitely going to create more jars with this technique with different materials.👍#mentalhealth #sensoryart #sensorycrafts #christmas #diygifts #christmastime #giftideas #alzheimersawareness #dementia #decoration #nursinghome #dementiaawareness #manyfacesofalzheimers #parkinson #alzheimers #alzheimersociety #dementiaactivities #artsandcrafts #crafty #elderly #seniorartists #wood #naturecrafts #wintercrafts #candleholder #nevertoolate #create #relaxing#recycling #recyclingart

The diagnosis is Parkinson's disease dementia when a person is originally diagnosed with Parkinson's based on movement symptoms and dementia symptoms don't appear until a year or more later.  #dementia #dementiasupport #dementiaawareness #parkinsonsdisease

Day 10- Grandmothers. Mine in particular Mam-gu and Grannie. They just let us learn....even if we did fall off ladders ...The best second parents my brother and I could ask for. Adventure partners, mischief and magic makers, disciplinarians, truthboothers, storytellers, life skill teachers, culinary creators and craft queens. I am so lucky to have had them so entwined in growing up and having them here now. Joan and Sarah. I hope we make you proud 💗💗🏆🏆 #grandmas #weowethemalot #lookafteryouroldies #mind #mentalhealthawareness #dementiaawareness #alzheimersawareness #craftlove #welshie

New study says #drawing boosts memory retention in #seniors. It made me think of my grandparents. My grandfather is still writing and publishing 📚 and my grandmother still plays 🎹 for others. It’s not drawing, but it may be that the arts, in general are a good thing!!

Gracie and Nana spending quality time together. When a loved one has dementia, you may feel an additional strain on your relationship. Where conversations used to feel effortless, suddenly it can be hard to know what to say. Call to Mind can be a fun and non-invasive tool to open up the channels of communication, helping you find those beloved smiles again. #smile #care #dementia #dementiaawareness #dementiasucks #dementiacare #dementiasupport #dementiauk #dementiafriends #eldercare #love #compassion #altzheimers #uk #family #familytime #nana #grandmother

Part 2: "Team Heather Feather’ , Heather’s journey with Alzheimer’s disease. I first noticed something wasn’t right with my mother right after the birth of my second child. She just didn’t seem to be herself. The changes were ever so subtle and so started an eight-year journey of losing her. It was like being on a horrific roller coaster ride. The hardest part was when she lost her speech. I used to talk to her everyday on the phone, and one of the things I miss most is just the sound of her voice. Early on, my parents made a promise to one another to live together as long as they could, and true to form, my father honoured his promise. He was the ultimate caregiver and husband. No one could ever have cared for my mother like he did, and despite the toll on him, I know he wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I never heard her complain about being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Never. After her diagnosis, it was something we never really spoke about - and we didn’t need to. Alzheimer’s didn’t define her – she wasn’t it. What she was, and what she always will be to many, was a big-hearted, kind, loyal woman who loved the colour red, being a teacher, watching sports, playing cards, travelling the globe, the taste of butter tarts, and her many friends and family.

Music is incredible - Today I took my lovely children’s choir to sing Christmas Songs for the elderly. Hearing them sing along with the children was so heart-warming, and I was told later on that some of them had dementia/Alzheimer’s, but they still remembered every word of the carols. Music is so powerful and important and today made me realise how lucky I am to teach and share my passion for music. 🎼🎄🎹 #music #musicteacher #choirleader #singing #singingforthebrain #christmassinging #christmascarols #lovemusic #dementiaawareness #alzheimers #christmas #musicteacherlife #keepmusicinschools #lovemyjob

The last year has been challenging as gram's dementia progresses, but she has her health and is still physically here with us. She forgets who we are from time to time, but I am so thankful to have moments like these to share with her... Having a family member with dementia really teaches you how to cherish every second. Happy 82nd birthday Abuela. ❤ #dementiasucks #dementiaawareness

Where The Light Gets In: Losing My Mother Only To Find Her Again by @kimberlywilliamspaisley was so touching and heartbreaking! #kimberlywilliamspaisley shares the relationship of her and her mother and the complicated change of losing her mother to dementia. 💔My grandmother had dementia. I remember my dad saying his mother was "gone" when he walked into the room and she didn't know him; years before she passed away. 💔I highly recommend the #audiobook read by the author herself. #book #greatread #audiobooklove #dementiaawareness #librarybook #readinglist #readingisfun #readabook
