Hi, my name is Sandy. I created this site to hopefully be of help to someone else who is suffering the same heartbreak that I did when my Mom (pictured above) was diagnosed with dementia.
I will share my story in detail and include as much information about where to get help that I can find. I hope you find the info you seek as well as a little comfort here. Here's what's inside:

In brief ... Mom was diagnosed in 1992, at first just being forgetful of little things, then bigger things such as leaving the stove on, etc. Slowly she also became aggressive, delusional and eventually helpless. It was the hardest time in my life. My Mom passed away in May of 1997, after developing pneumonia from inactivity ... she had even forgotten how to walk !
While I would not force religion on anyone, I can only attest to the fact that faith in God and a belief in a better life after this one, is what helped me. I rest assured that my Mom is at peace now and free of her tormented thoughts. I hope you will seek faith also, in whatever higher power you believe in. They say God never gives us more than we can handle, and I guess it must be true, because I never would have thought I could cope with those 5 years. I hope you like this site and send it to anyone you know who has a friend or loved one with this most heartbreaking disease. Thanks !
