Dementia it affects us all in some way.

Wednesday 17th Apr
My dad was/is my hero, I never thought anything could stop him climbing munros or traveling  across the planet. 
But something did. 
After seeing my dad , after sometime I could tell right away something wasn't right. 
I had experience with working with Dementia patients when I did care. 
I knew right away almost, this is what dad had. 
After that dad lived with Dementia for 8 or 9 years. 
He got Dementia young in his mid 60s. 
It was & is still very sad for us all. 
Later on a few months before his death, my dad finally had got in a home suitable for him. 
Me and my kids got to spend time with him doing joyful things. 
I miss him everyday. 
This year on my birthday it will be 4 years since he passed. 
We have another close family member, who is now in a home with Dementia. 
She's an amazing lady, she is now 94. 
Will be 95 this year on her birthday! 
We cared for her for 2 & half years in her own home but now she's in the best place for her. 
We love her very much. 
Dementia is sad for those with it & for their families/ friends. 
It's so important to find joy in each day, even on those really tough days. ♡
