My Sweet Mother

My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about 7 yers ago. I've always helped my mom anyway I could before and wasn't going to let her go through this alone or with strangers. It's been hard but I will never regret taking care of my mom.

I worked full time the first few years and hired someone to sit with mom while I worked. I cared for her after work, I now care for my mom full-time by myself and have for several years. It's hard to watch what this horrible disease is doing to her but I will be here with her no matter what. I love my mom very much.
