The unpredictability of Alzheimer’s.

Curtain #1

The link above is a blog entry by a delightful woman who is taking care of her husband.  Being a caregiver of someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementia is challenging in so many ways but this blogger truly knows how to find the silver lining in her experience as a spousal caregiver.

“Curtain #1 beautifully portrays a day’s challenge as an adventure, not unlike the game show Let’s Make a Deal.  You never know what will be behind the curtain – a prize, or a zonk – but this wife’s way of looking at each experience is very refreshing.  I don’t think I would handle the circumstances nearly as well as she does.  I hope she knows that having a bad day, and one with less-than-perfect attitudes, is more than o.k. because we’re only human, after all.  Until we reach perfection, we’ll just have to do the best that we can with what we’ve been given.

I think she’s doing just fine.
