Dorothy’s Dementia

Dorothy and Full Moon Fever

Man- talk about tough times, the full moon gets mom every month.  I’m not sure how it works or how we can prevent the full moon effecting some (most) folks, but I’d like to see them come up with a way to stop it from affecting Dementia and Sundowner folks.   They have a hard-enough time.  

I guess the biggest change- besides the phone calls coming more frequently- is the intensity in her voice of the confusion, fear and frustration.   

It’s hard- hard to keep an even keel and let her just vent.  Somedays, I honestly don’t want to hear it- but I know it’s just her song and it will be okay.

Tonight is the last Super Moon of 2019, it’s going to be amazing! I am hoping for clear skies here in Atlanta.   I’m excited to be looking at it with my grandboys out of their upstairs window. And, I am hopeful that mom will be able to see it from the top of the hill outside of her facility.

Peace & Love,

Cheryl Doreen
