Wow. Thank you both so much for talking about this and all the stuff that comes up in a family going through watching their loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia. So well said and even though I wish my family and I all would have listened to this 2 years ago I think this will still help as we navigate. Sending you love for going through this because as you said, sometimes it’s just hard.
I wrote a song about it called The Lights Upstairs that might be a good listen for you too. https://youtu.be/0n6VwFFjjAQ
Thank you again!
