I'm asking for prayers from the SR.com community.

We're going through a very trying time at the moment.

My mother's taken a sharp decline over the last few months, due to Dementia.

Anyone who has gone through this knows what I'm talking about. Watching a loved one turn into a complete stranger is almost too much to bear, and it changes you forever.

Think about us in your prayers, if you can, thanks.

Reading the responses I counted 13 out of 34 who have had a loved one with dementia. That's over 1/3.

Add me to that as my mom who, Lord willing, will be 97 on the 21st has late onset Alzheimer's.

May the Lord bless you and your mom and family with strength, courage, comfort and everything you need during this time of uncertainty and difficulty.

As others have said, even though our loved ones can't communicate it, they absolutely do appreciate all the love and time we spend loving and caring for them as best we can. Take care of yourself and God bless you. 🙏💕

I can identify, and I feel for you. My father was diagnosed with Frontal Lobe Dementia about 7 years ago. He is in the latter stages. To make matters worse, my father in-law was also diagnosed with the same a about three years ago. So this process will be ongoing for a while for my family. Dementia is a terrible thing to watch them go through, and is extremely hard on the families involved, mentally, physically, and financially as well.
