My brother and his wife while visiting my mother found her speaking to her “friend.” They were able to capture this special moment which truly shows us how two people with Alzheimer’s can connect. We, as a family, did not feel that my mother was capable of this anymore.
This is a touching video that shows us the intimacy two friends can have. While they held hands, my mother shared with Margaret how her daughter (me) did not come to visit her. From what I have just witnessed, I am able to understand a little better.
When Lisa Hirsch found out her mother, Ruth, had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, her love, appreciation, and caring for her mother was transformed. To Lisa’s surprise, it has brought her and Ruth closer together than they’ve ever been. My Mom My Hero
tells the story of this mother-daughter relationship through a series of entries from Lisa’s internationally popular blog. Ultimately this is an uplifting and inspirational book for anyone who’s going through the difficult and often lonely ordeal of caring for a loved one who suffers from this devastating illness.
