Calrita's Story

SP-TorStar.jpg
 

I am a wife, business owner, mother, daughter, one of 4 siblings, aunt and primary caretaker. My life is certainly difficult at times but I strive to meet the challenges and maintain balance. 

My mom has dementia so after weighing out the options with my dad he had to come to a difficult decision but clearly the best option to be separated from my mom to ensure her best possible care.  My dad is very strong and independent and deserves a full life. He is now better able to take care of himself and be a husband again and not a one hundred percent caregiver. I will always have the spirit to remember my mom as who she was and the love to accept her as she is now. I will always support my mom and dad, as I love them dearly. 

I am lucky to have a strong and supportive network to hold me up and lend an ear.
