“My husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s three years ago and of course our lives have changed tremendously. One thing I realize is that I “like”my husband as much as I “love” him and we will go day to day with this powerful disease. Yes, my husband has Alzheimer’s but I try not to sweat the little things anymore. Those little imperfections in our lives just do not matter. I really don’t think about the little things that could spoil our day. I concentrate on living our lives as happy as we did and laughing as much as possible each day! That’s what is important…not wasting time on the unimportant things. I smile every time I think about him!”

Pat Anderson, The Dubin Center Caregiver and loving wife

I wrote this poem (click here to read) to creatively express my overwhelming emotions of grief. I am in hope that this will help others to deal with their own grief of a spouse especially through dementia.

Sandy, The Dubin Center Caregiver

For anyone dealing with dementia, whether it be the person diagnosed or their loved ones, having an organization like The Dubin Center to help navigate and cope with this life-changing reality is invaluable. It’s been a while since Maria’s diagnosis so, as expected, our situation and needs are ever changing. The Dubin Center has been there for us since our initial interaction with them. For their vital support we return the favor by supporting the work they are doing for the whole community.
