Note: In 2007, Jamie Wilson Headley (founder and CEO of Dementia Services Group) began the complicated process of helping her once-independent mother adjust to life with dementia.
These are the challenges that one woman faced, but although Jamie’s Journey is deeply personal, it is also universal. We hope that her trials and triumphs will shed light on the emotional and logistical issues that come with caring someone with dementia.
After Mom and I had our mutual breakdown, I pulled myself together and apologized for shouting at her. I did my best to reassure her that I would make everything better. We talked for a while, and I asked her what she wanted to do. She said she didn’t know, but she did not want to stay there any longer.
