The single most important piece of advice I received about loving someone with dementia is to remember that they are more than their illness.

Although it hurts to witness their mental and physical capacities slowly deteriorate, the Essence of who they are remains.


Call it their spirit. Call it their bigness. Call it their soul.


It doesn’t really matter what you call it. What matters is that you remember.
