Here are drawn out from my experience in being a caregiver for my mom:
We cannot change the outcome of the illness but we can change our mindset in approaching the illness. For example, I went through a period of grieving when my mom, who have been my best friend and my pillar started to lose her memory and not recognize me. But I have learned to see the merciful side of Alzheimer’s and the dynamics of the relationship have now been reversed. I am now the nurturer while my mom is the baby. Regardless of what medical condition the person you are caring for, changing the outlook can affect your inner peace and energy levels.
