LOVE; AND DEMENTIA

Feb 27, 2018 || A TRUE LIFE SCENARIO

It’s another favorite day, just because it’s Talk Tuesday!

This one is super dear to my heart as it contains sensitive matters.

Read on.

Days back I boarded a local transportation means back home after a full day at work. Not ready for extras I just stepped in and sat down with my exact t-fare as the struggle for change in Nigeria is something else. A young lady, appears to be my age group came by and described where she was going and entered too not before I saw her taking to an old man ‘Baba sit down for here, I go sidon do front (Dad, sit at the back, I’ll sit in front).

Shortly I got to notice a slight change in Baba’s attitude, he talked like he couldn’t remember much and needed help, acted lie that too but daughter was patient with him. It just dawned on me the kind of things that come with old age. I sat there lost I thoughts, Dementia! Damn! Tried to place my mind around it but I held back. I just couldn’t, because on a normal day, our parents can do some certain things and we’ll want to snap back.

How can we deal with people that have this situation. What amount of patience is enough? Can you really go all out for your parent(s) if they’re affected?

My heart goes out to all those suffering form Dementia; and those taking out time to care for them…. Many blessings!
