I am over on beautiful Sanibel Island and we are celebrating a life well lived with family and friends, so I’ll be keeping this brief. If you know me from Facebook or Instagram then you may know that we have been coming over to Sanibel Island for many years now. My husband’s parents
Things changed for our family 3 years ago when my father-in-law had a stroke and we moved him to Miami to be closer to us. He had already been showing the signs of dementia, like writing checks for the wrong amount, using OnStar to find his way home from the grocery store and some noticeable confusion.
We had him in an excellent facility close by where they could tend to his needs more than we could, and he received the care that he truly deserved. Dementia is a horrible and insidious disease, and for the last year things became much worse. One of us had to go over to his facility pretty much on a daily basis. I won’t go into details, but it’s been a rough year for our family…especially my sweet and caring husband.
