    I'm sad.

    Yesterday we had to move my older sister from an assisted living home to a dementia facility. She is so confused. She knows my name but doesn't remember that we are sisters. I am so sad! I hope I can visit her before we leave for Aruba next Thurs.

    My heart breaks for you. It’s a challenging situation. I do hope you get to visit before your trip and your sister knows you.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Good morning,

    I echo Peg's feelings. I hope that she gets really good care at the facility she is in now and that you can visit her in the coming days.

    My mother is in a memory care unit on hospice. I'm so sorry for you both.

    God bless Pat and all of her family that love her.
    Dementia is ugly and horrible.
