"What time do I need to be up tomorrow?"
My mother is in the (not so) early stages of dementia. She is having a procedure tomorrow, and this is how she is trying to process what needs to happen/what will happen tomorrow. There are two printed sheets of instructions (doctor and pharmacist), a daybook and a clear daily step-by-step list created by my sister-in-law. Not pictured: the wall calendar filled with scribbles. Seeing her struggle to make sense of what should be fairly straightforward instructions and perseverate on rewriting tiny details makes my heart ache. #dementiaiscruel #mymother #dailystruggles #anxiety #fearoftheunknown #earlystages
