World’s Alzheimer’s Day was was this past Sunday. It is a day on which Alzheimer associations concentrate their efforts on raising awareness about dementia. There are an estimated 24 million people around the world who currently have dementia. My grandmother is one of them. Last October, my parents moved her from her home in El Paso into Manor Park. Every time I see her or talk to her she talks about going home. It is sad, because she will never get to go home and she wouldn’t understand why not. Below is a picture of her and I taken last November at my parent’s house for Thanksgiving.
Carolyn King, a stamp designer and paper crafter, posted some serious blog candy on my her blog to promote knowledge about Alzheimer’s. Her grandmother also had Alzheimer’s. To enter for a chance to win the awesome blog candy that a lot of companies donated to, Cammie wants you to make a card to thank Alzheimer patients’ caregivers. I made the following card which I am sending to the staff at Manor Park. I used Lauren’s mytimess06 sketch.
