"I'm Lost... Dementia"

Mary Hopson's avatar Mary Hopson

As a caregiver to a beautiful French woman with Dementia, I struggle with the emotions and pain I feel for her. This painting helps tell the story of her struggle. It shows everything from the pain of separation from her family, her ghost cat, and even her good guy/bad guy (in her mind) husband. Caring for someone with this disease is heartbreaking for everyone involved. I hope this will raise some awareness. I pray we find a cure....
