Patience, what’s that?

They say patience is a virtue, but it is most definitely not something that comes easily for me.

This was evident this evening when I visited my grandma at her nursing home. Since she suffers from dementia, she’s not always “all there in the head”, to put it mildly. Sometimes it can be hard to keep your patience with her when she’s not making any sense or when she snottily demands the food you brought her, or when she accuses you of not visiting in weeks.

However, I’ve watched others suffer from Alzheimer’s and I know first-hand how unpleasant and merciless this disease can be. I also know that it is not anyone’s fault. And I definitely know that I love my gram to pieces and she deserves the best from me. So you just have to grin and bear it.

If you’re interested in donating to a great cause to benefit Alzheimer’s disease, consider making a donation to the Ann and Raymond Gath Memorial Foundation. All donations or inquiries may be directed to annandraygathfoundation@gmail.com.
