    People end up getting very depressed when their expectations aren't met. it's better if we don't expect anything

    I was with an 87 year old dementia client early this morning and I was informed she hadn't taken a shower since April. I was told to "not even bother trying because she'll become aggressive." It's amazing how far patience, a gentle nature and a caring attitude can take a person. I managed to get her showered and she even let me do her hair, my day is made!

    Thank you for your kindness and patience. My Mom suffered with Alzheimer's for 15 years before succumbing to it last Summer. She had some of the most caring caregivers ever. We were thankful for that.

    My grand-father had dementia and it's people like you who made his last days better. ❤

    I would much rather fail at meeting my own expectations than be forced to settlefor whatever is given to me due to my lack of expectation. Depression for me does not come from failure, it comes from complacency.

    Agree wholeheartedly.

    I was facetiming with my boyfriend before going to bed last night and our connection wasn't good. The screen froze with my mouth open with a close up of my nostrils. That's the last sight of me that he has seen before going to sleep. I hope he didn't get any nightmares. 🤷‍♀️😂

    This made me chuckle.
