My Daddykins and Alzheimers

If you’ve followed us for a while you’ll know I talk about and document Dads Alzheimers journey to raise awareness.

🎥


My dad has been slipping away over the last 12years BUT in the last 10months the decline has been rapid. This could be due to the the fact that I moved him into a care home back in January, or the lack of going out and about due to Covid or the disease itself.

🤔


I guess I’ll never know. But one thing I do know is that I don’t want my dad to suffer with the latter stages of dementia for long. That may sound harsh but I KNOW he would never want me to see him like that, or for himself to suffer and lose his dignity. I guess unless you’ve experienced it or have seen it first hand you can’t really relate to those words.

😔


Alzheimers is a cruel disease. BUT I truly believe that my dad has no clue how much he’s declining and for that I am so VERY grateful. As he once said to me... “I don’t remember not remembering” and that is just perfect for me to hold on to that thought.

💕


Has anyone else seen a vast decline in their loved ones during this time?
