I found this very helpful but also difficult. This is the first Christmas my friend will be in a long term care home. We have spent Christmas together for the last 46 years so it will be different. Thanks for your suggestions and advice.
I could never afford long term care for my wife. I cared for her at home. I traveled into her past with her as that was her life. Short term memory gone only knew her past. At 86 she was living her 20’s when she died. ?
