Reminder: All my Poem A Day posts will deal with Alzheimer’s or dementia or the
caregiver in some way.
Note:There are times when you need to keep things light or the heaviness will surround you. There are times when caring for an Alzheimer’s or dementia impaired loved one is best handled by entering their world with them. There are times when you just don’t know what to do.
