This picture was taken a few years ago, when he was more "himself". He now lives in a nursing home, and maybe wonders why he's there. Who knows, Alzheimer's has taken him away from us.
I recently came across this beautiful story of a son's love for his father with dementia. It's a wonderful story about how much we care for each other. Of course, it reminds me of my own family who look after my own Dad.
It's written and photographed by Philip Toledano, here's the link to his website: Mr Toledano.
I love how he is so gentle with his Dad, and clearly loves him so much. Stories are meant to be told, and this one is a beautiful tribute to all of us who are touched by Alzheimer's and dementia.
