Dementia Became a “Perk” in Her Elderly Years

Here’s a brand new way, to embrace dementia all right…

Dementia became a “perk” in her elderly years, and so what IF she’s slowly, recalling, less and less?  Dementia took her back to those innocent days where she’d roamed, wild AND free in her childhood days, and, she’d let go of all the badness, of every single sorrow, pain, she’d ever endured, and ended up, only recalling, the good stuff.

Dementia became a “perk” in her elderly years, because of her dementia, all of her children who originally lived far away, in other cities, all came back, to share the responsibilities for caring for her, that, was something that she’d never expected.  Dementia became a “perk” in her elderly years, because of this “condition”, she was allowed, to get by, with a LOT, more than compared to if she were a more lucid, more able older adult.

Dementia became a “perk” in her elderly years, because of her dementia, all of her children joined in, in accompanying her every day of the week, so she won’t be left alone on her own, and, dementia had brought her family and her closer together.

Who’d thought, that being demented is so wonderful, right???  Dementia became a “perk” in her elderly years, and, even though, she can’t even remember WHO she is on some days, her children are right there, next to her, helping her, sorting through those old photographs with her, and, she’d finally, gotten the old age she’d always wanted to get: being surrounded by her loved ones.
