One person did. Below is a piece of wisdom written from the perspective of one living with Alzheimer's to those who are caregivers. A friend shared this with me and you can see a video at An Alzheimer's Request. This is an informative website for those impacted by Alzheimer's. Do you know of a website or writing that would be helpful to others? Email me and we will share your information as space allows. On behalf of AWBA to those we serve, we thank you for giving us a place in your support network to be a listening presence.
An Alzheimer's Request
Do not ask me to remember.
Don't try to make me understand.
Let me rest and know you're with me.
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I'm confused beyond your concept.
I am sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you
To be with me at all costs.
Please do not lose your patience with me.
Do not scold me or curse or cry.
I can't help the way I'm acting.
I can't be different though I try.
Just remember that I need you
And that the best of me is gone.
Please don't fail to stand beside me
And love me till my life is done.
