Teepa Snow is an authority on Alzheimer’s and Dementia, praised for her ability to help caregivers guide their loved ones through this journey. She seems to recognize that this is just a new stage in the relationship and that we don’t as much “help” our loved ones through it – it’s more like to “love” our loved ones through it. It is a journey and it’s a journey that everyone takes together.
And it is hard – but we can all learn lessons and phrases to make it easier.
