Its been a weird week so far and I am looking forward to it being over! I'm off work next week, going to my parents house to look after things while they are off in Europe. I'm a little worried about my grandparents, they live near my parents in an assisted living facility and both have dementia. My Grandma is very much an Alzheimer's poster and its very challenging to deal with. Sometimes you just have to pretend they are like a toddler, but its hard when for the past 80 years they were able to do all these things, and now they can't and they don't understand that. I was reading up on ways to help and how to handle it. I want to go and visit them every other day or so. This is also why I am trying to get healthy. I want to do what I can now to try and prevent issues from coming up when I am older. So while I'm away at my parents I'm going to put myself through a little bootcamp. I've got my Jillian Michaels DVDs and have to take the dog for walks! It'll be great!
