My Mom's Dementia Story
My mother in law (my husband's mom) had lived with us in Colorado and when we moved back to Clearwater, FL, she started living by herself in her condo.
The very first signs I ever noticed about her problems was that she repeated the same stories over and over again. We would go out for lunch once a week and she would tell me the same story about how her cat curled up behind her head EVERY week.
After that I noticed that she was buying a lot of things and then leaving the boxes laying around because she couldn't figure out how to get them to the dumpster at her condo complex.
And then she started getting two of everything she bought because she would order it once and then order it again.
NONE of those things made us feel at all like she had an incurable disease, we just thought it was Mom getting older (she was in her late sixties at the time).
Fast forward past a whole bunch more signs that we missed and Mom fell, moved in with us and got a diagnosis of Dementia… sigh.
DISCLAIMER GOING FORWARD… I am a caregiver, not a doctor. Get all medical advice from your loved one's doctor, not a blogger on the internet!
What Is Dementia?
The first time I heard someone say dementia I asked for a definition… and WHOA it was way more than just losing your memory!
Signs of Dementia
Here are some signs of dementia that we have noticed in Mom:
- Memory loss
- Repeating herself
- Won't take showers
- Trouble with medicine
- Cancelling doctor's appointment
- Lethargic and weak
- Won't eat
- Drinks to much
- Falling down

To get these vintage flower tags and tickets just sign up for my freebies library (link below). There are TONS of fun free printables available in there!
You can print these on your home printer, but you can also send them out to a commercial printing company like Office Depot or UPS. The copyright notice at the bottom will allow them to print them commercially.
They are standard 8.5″X11″ Letter Sized paper. I like to use matte presentation paper so they are a little stiffer than if you use just typewriter paper!
