In Honor Of Our Mother
A loving tribute to our Mother
who was the best caregiver Dad could have had. He couldn't say thank you or tell
you how much he appreciated the loving care you gave him....but we would like to
do it for him.
Thanks Mom !

In Honor Of One Of My Readers
I received this letter and decided to post it here
because Gloria was a caregiver who deserves recognition
Gloria aka AZGLOR922
I truly enjoy your site and
will be using it more and more as we are awaiting to find if my mom is facing
dementia or just old age. She is showing signs of it, had a sister (my aunt
Dorothy) who passed away last year from the illness. She was a young 80 and my
mom is just turning 83 the 14th of June. One never knows when our time is up as
I found out last year when I lost my husband Glenn to heart disease. He too was
a young man of 67. He had been ill for a number of years, I cared for him for 13
years of which the last 4 were the worst. Only those that have experienced
sickness and death of a loved one can share and understand what we go thru at a
time like this. There are many in my family that condem me now and say that I
didn't give him love or comfort in the last few months of his life. They don't
know what I went thru during those times. There were days that I didn't think
that I would make it thru the day and night but with the help of God I did. I
thank God each day for giving me the strength to continue while Glenn was so
sick. Like you said, he never gives us more than we can handle at one time.
Glenn knew that I loved him and know that he loved me. Please include him in
your memory and memorials as he was truly a great man. There was compassion and
love between us thru all times. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share
my short memorial to Glenn and to open up with my pain. It shall be a year on
the 26th of June that he passed away. I still love and miss him but know that
he's in a better place now with his parents, my father and other friends and
family that have also passed on to be with God.
In Honor Of My Father

My mom and dad are beautiful parents. Having been married for 56 years to one person is very hard when one is found to have Alzheimers and Lupus. My mother (Catherine B. Hoad) has had this for the last 5 years. My dad is her caregiver and does a great job considering how hard it is for him to cope sometimes. Mom had a heart attack on March 7, 1999 and was in hospital for 11 days. I stayed the night with her and dad during the days. My mom travelled through a whole new world in her mind during those 11 days. I honor my dad for the strength it takes to endure everyday with these disease's. I love you both.

In Honor Of My Sister
I would like to tell you about someone very special to me, her name is Sue and she is my sister. For 5 years she has taken care of someone who is is suffering from dementa and she is with this woman for six days a week, she only gets Saturdays from 11am to 8 pm to herself, in addition she also has two young children and a 9 month old granddaughter that she babysits for,and a spouse. She also has a 10 room house, so you can see that she is a very busy person. She has given up her own job and life to care for this person. Sue, I just want you to know that you are a very remarkable person and I am so glad that you are my sister. I love you.

In Honor Of My Wife
A tribute to my wife Pat Bourgeois, She has been in the care givers field for approximately 10 years now. her mom died 8 years ago from Alzheimer's. She now works for an Alzheimer's assisted living facility, here in Mesa, AZ. I have been in to see her at work and visited with the residents. an would like to say that I'm Proud of her. It takes a certain kind of person to do this type of work on a daily basis. I have not seen another who cares more about she does. Then my Wife, Pat, I love you and I'm Proud of you,

In Honor Of My Sister
When my Grandfather passed away in 1996, my sister took on the task of caring for my Grandmother with Alzheimer's, Nanny. My mother was not capable herself of caring for her mother so Linda decided to. She loved and cared for Nanny 2 years until her passing this Sept. In October she was blessed to find out that she would be a grandmother herself, I know that the thought of that filled her void. On December 4, tragedy struck and her husband of 24 years died from the result of a massive heart attack. His faith in God and their faith as husband and wife has sustained her through it all. When I think of all she has done and now is blessed with this new angel grandson, Adam, I am so thankful that she is an angel on earth. It takes a special person to care for those with Alzheimer's and Dementia. My sister is special

In Honor Of A Very Dear Friend
We met thru this site and knowing her has added so much to my life. Jan is a very loving and caring daughter who's Mom has been fighting Alzheimer's for about 10 years. She sees that her Mom has the best of care at all times. Jan gives so much to everyone never thinking about herself. I know her Mom is in her own world, but she knows Jan loves her very much. Without her love, support, and caring she shares a lot of us wouldn't make it. Jan you are one in a million. Love You Like A Sister

In Honor Of My Mother
You hold his hand and show him reality.
Without you, where would he be ?
My Mother, (of course as any daughter would say) is the best, most beautiful, caring and loving woman on this earth. Yet what's very special about her is, that she is an angel sent down from heaven above. My father was diagnosed with Alzheimers a few years ago and My Mother has been by his side every step, every second, every minute and every hour of this dreadful disease. She is more than dedicated to him and his love, she is dedicated to those little times that he seems to slip away into his own world, to show him reality, the reality that he loses touch with. More than once she has been hospitalized because of her health, due to the fact she works so hard day and night caring for him that she sometimes forgets to care for herself. My Fathers eyes light up each time she returns home, as if he knows his Angel is back. So to My Mother and every caregiver out there, you all are very special Angels that deserve recognition, your rewards are many, and the people you care for are very fortunate to have "Angels" like you from above.
