After years of dementia, my Mom passed away. I wrote about it and it turned into this published article. The Alzheimer's Association suggested I'd post it here so that more people would be able to benefit from it. 

I hope it can.

Feel free to share with anyone else.

Thank you for posting your story, Dijan. I got a lot out of reading it, and wanted to say I have also found Eckhart Tolle's teachings on youtube to be very helpful - his philosophy resonates so clearly with so much of what we are going through. I hope that a lot of people will read your story. Blessings and light to you and your mother and family.

The last one...acceptance. That’s the big one for me! Thanks for your post.
