The Mom & Me Journals dot Net

These essays are a good read and thought provoking. The writer is a good observer of herself and her mother. There are three sets accessible through the main site.

The definitive, eccentric journal of an unlikely caregiver, continued.

Apologia for these journals:
They are not about taking care of a relative with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s/senile dementia.

I don’t consider myself primarily a caregiver to a parent with dementia, Alzheimer’s or not. I identify myself as my mother’s companion. She asked me to accompany her through her last years in 1993. I assented. I also identify myself as my mother’s caregiver and “a caregiver to an Ancient One”. At least as often as I talk about taking care of her, I talk about accompanying her. I more often talk about the journey I’m on with my mother rather than the task of taking care of her.

[I find the color schemes hard to read in a browser so I use a feed reader, such as Great News.]
