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.
Mom was settling in nicely in the new facility. I was still there daily but I was less stressed because she was less stressed. We were coming up on the Memorial Day holiday and I was looking forward to relaxing a bit and maybe even taking a day for myself, and not visiting Mom. My husband and I were discussing options for the weekend that night when my phone rang and it was the receptionist from Mom’s complex.
