Hello everyone and Happy New Year! This past year has been very difficult for my husband and myself as my mom has very quickly developed dementia and has trouble with daily activities.

It is so very difficult seeing someone you love deteriorate so rapidly. We have her house on the market for sale and plan to put her into assisted living when and if it sells.
