Lydia's Caregiver Story

Lydia's Caregiver Story

My grandmother came to live with my mom and I four years ago. Through those years her Alzheimer's got worse and she became less and less mobile. She retained her indomitable spirit and good will. It was the most stressful four years of my life but I would never change a thing. I am so grateful that I was able to spend this time with her and learn more about her than I ever knew before. I have grown so much just through the experience and I'll never forget what she taught me: if you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at? And to take joy out of everything. She passed away last December and I miss her every day but I wouldn't change a thing.
