Lucky Us!

holiday-83186_640We live at Rose Villa in Portland, Ore. What could have been a lonely and sad holiday season has been so very different for many reasons.

Yes, Elsie and I live with dementia which is challenging, but we are meeting it head on with lots of support from friends in the same boat, and a caring staff watching over us. We have a sweet little cottage and a fairytale life.

The invasion of the Alzheimer's has simply brought us closer together. We have been able to let go, enjoy what we have today, and hold each other tight. No sad songs in our little cottage, we continue to live our final honeymoon.

Caregiving.com has been a bright light with all the positive posts from names starting to become familiar. Thank you all for the sharing and community. It is bittersweet to know that we are not alone on our journey.
