Liebster Blog Award

Many thanks to terry1954 who nominated me for the Liebster Blog award. Terry is now looking after her brother who has Parkinson’s-linked dementia, with great fortitude, love and courage. She shares her journey on her blog and though we feel her pain, we also sense her strength and humanity.

  1. Congratulations, Frangipani. And many thanks for visiting my site. I visited you before – but during this visit I read the story of you reminding your mom to eat lunch. I hope you will be blessed with the strength to not let this disease break your heart. I’ve worked with people with Alzeihmer’s and Dementia and the stories are wide and varied. It is very difficult to convince an offspring that the parent’s love is still valid. It’s still there, but the disease re-wires and re-directs ruthlessly – for both the parent and the child.

    So glad you write about it…it will help countless numbers of people.


    1. Thank you. I am constantly reminded things will likely get worse and try my best to appreciate the present. Writing has helped me, and it will be so gratifying to help others as well.
