A good one for Mom & I, but my little neighbor, Rita (83 yr. old widow of 6 mos.) fell in the bathroom this morning about 8:15. I was exhausted last night & I turned my cell phone of (hardly ever do that, unless I've been up half the night). Whe... Read more

I had my Mom's bags packed, clothes labeled & I had spent most of the day trying to emotionally prepare myself to place my Mom in the nursing home tomorrow (into the dementia unit). Things were a GO at 12:00 noon & then at 3:30 P.M. I received a... Read more

Mom is all off schedule today & having quite a pity party. Unfortunately I was not home when she got up this morning & after her nap, so she did not get dressed & is still in her pajamas. The only thing wrong with it is...it really mixes her up ... Read more
