Emily from Georgia
Mildred is my grandmother. Some days she knows who I am other days she doesn't. It's very hard on me. The days she doesn't recognize me I spend hours trying to calm her down and make her comfortable enough so that she'll eat and take her daily medications as well as allow me to wash her and help get her dressed. I say every day it's a blessing to still have her here in my life. I work a full time job so on the days I work we have caregivers come in and they sit with her. However for the most part I try to hold all the bigger responsibilities. No matter if she recognizes me or not I be she can tell you I make her feel loved every single day. It's the small things that people cherish and that mean the most.
