A lady at my Mom’s nursing home who speaks only Spanish caught my eye from day 1. She would always dance, hand me random objects like a shoe, toilet paper roll, fork, etc. She would always wander and smile. Just recently I went there and she is now in a wheelchair. I guess she has been having problems and is no longer stable on her feet. This hit me harder than I would have thought, I saw my Mom lose her sense of balance and it brought me back to that time. I feel so bad for this women’s family and pray for them as they go through this change in her life. I HATE Dementia, it sucks everything out of a person…
