I was thinking last night how it also takes a village to help care for someone afflicted with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementias.
I was blessed to find such a village for my husband, Richard.
And it was a beautiful one.
Adult day care programs full of music and art to nurture the soul.
Caregivers to provide love and comfort while I was working or resting.
Medical professionals who have guided Richard and myself through his long journey.
My daughter and I will be thanking village residents for the great gifts they have shared
at my husband’s celebration of life this week.
And I believe Richard will be as well, in his own way.
