What I liked about this Dementia Help Sheet (link below): 

  • I know that I am no use to anyone when I am exhausted.  And yet, I am always exhausted.  Parents are exhausting…

What I do: 

  • I do what has to be done but I am neither a martyr nor a machine…

Author of this blog (Transparency):   

  • I work for CPR Global Tech and, for personal reasons, like many people, I have had to learn a lot about dementia the hard way.  As there is a natural forum on our website, it makes sense for me to share info here.
