    Options - yes, there are many. I remember how helpful it was for my siblings and I have to have the input of a person who specializes in dealing with people with dementia. We opted to keep Mom at home for now, as this was her deep desire. We have added a part-time caregiver to help when we're not with her. One thing to remember, and something that we're learning, is that the ongoing decline that dementia brings means that we're always in a process of evaluation.

    Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
    Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
    Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
    If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
