Does She Even Know I’m Here?

Caring for a loved one with dementia is truly a difficult road.  To see someone important in your life slowly slipping away from you can be heart wrenching.  And when your loved one enters into the later stages of dementia, you may wonder if they even know that you are there any longer.

This video can affirm for you that the connection can still exist.  Though you may not be greeted with that connection during each visit or interaction, when it happens it can be very powerful for you.

 

If you are caring for or have a loved one who is suffering from dementia, please watch this video…..all the way to the end.  Though it may initially break your heart, it will ultimately lift you up and validate your ongoing efforts to connect to your loved one.
