Damned if you do ...

damned if you don't.

In caring for a person with Alzheiemers, the suggestion is that you give him the word he seeks or go along with his "adjusted language." In keeping with this advice, when Bob started calling the radio's remote control the "radio," I went along with that.

Today he was really frustrated when I told him we kept his (new birthday gift from the girls) iPod between the speaker and the radio. I went in to the bedroom to help out and found him holding the remote control and looking all about the room; he had NO idea about the speaker but he did have the "radio" in hand.


  1. Wow! It's never easy is it? Love you.

  2. Thanks so much for the link, Nancy.

    Love you, my friend.
