You never really think about this disease until you’re affected by it. My Dad was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia last year. As soon as I got the news, I retired from my job and drove home to spend as much time as I could with my Dad before he forgets who we are and who he is.
This video is about Beth’s Dad. I can relate to this because I’m experiencing it every day. Some days are good for Dad. He talks, he listens, and he understands what’s going on. Other days, and more of them lately, he stares out our living room window unaware of what’s going on.
My Mom and Dad are celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary this month and I can tell my Mom isn’t taking this too well. She gets mad at him, she gets frustrated, and all the rest. I can only imagine how horrible it is to see the man you love literally fall apart before your eyes.
If you have someone in your family that is suffering from this horrific condition, feel free to share here if you’re comfortable. If not, I get it.
All the best,
