Sharing Wisdom

From  Alphonsa in Malaysia
 
I am a 58-year-old single person caring for my 87-year-old mother who has Alzheimer’s. Each day I remind myself to be of good cheer to make her final days comfortable. I give her big hugs to let her know I am there for her always. I look her in the eyes when I talk to her and if she repeats her sentences, I pretend that I am hearing them for the first time. I help her bathe and I cook the meals for the five of us (my widowed sister and two daughters are with us, too). When stressed out, the others relieve me and I go for walks. Mum has been cooperative and that has made caregiving much easier.

Prepare colorful small amounts of food on decorative plates for the elderly or anyone losing their appetite. The color is appetizing!
