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.

I can say I know how you feel going through the period of watching your parents decline and eventually passing on, whether that decline be due to dementia, Alzheimers, or other diseases or illnesses. My mother was in a nursing home for 10 years before passing away in 2013 as a result of Mutliple Sclorosis and COPD. My middle sister died of a heart attack 6 weeks later at age 49, and my step-father in 2015 from several strokes and heart problems. So, as I said, I know how you feel.
Cherish every moment that you have with your mom, and know that God is in control at all times. He knows what is best and will guide you and your family through this difficult time in your life. I know it's hard, but stay positive, especially around her, and remember the great times that you had when she could remember you all. That is what she would want.
Prayers for you and your family always!!!!!!

My dad passed away less than 11 months ago, a victim of Alzheimer’s. I was sitting here hours before seeing this thread, thinking of him & trying not to tear up, as my daughter was getting ready for a soccer game. I have been bawling while reading the responses...for my pop as well as the rest of you here that have gone through this. My prayers go out to you & your family. I appreciate the other posters words of support. I hope they comfort you as they have me.
