Did you know that 50% of marriages in this country end in divorce? Subsequent marriage…
Last Wednesday, March 30, 2016, we were inspired by Dr. Susan Farella-Busch’s most thoughtful discussion on “life with dementia.” You could hear a pin drop in the room of over 70 health care professionals at our Round Table Luncheon at Puglia’s of Garden City.
- She shared her insights of what life is like for a person with dementia and what it is also like for the caregivers.
- She shared stories about her mother who has Alzheimer’s and what it is like for her as a caregiver.
- She shared anecdotes from her family, and the loss of her deeply loved husband last year.
Sometimes, you find yourself in a place where you never thought you would be. We are all getting older and with that we are caregivers; we suffer the loss of loved ones.
I was very much taken back by Dr. Farella-Busch’s closing thoughts:
“It is sometimes advantageous to live moment to moment and it’s certain some people wish they could live more in the moment. For those who have little choice but to live in the moment, remember each moment your loved one has can be joyful and even if the memory of the moment is fleeting, hopefully, the feeling of being loved and cared for will remain.”
We were touched by a spirit of optimism and joy. Life is worth Living.
God Bless this spirit who we call Dr. Susan Farella-Busch.
