Smokey and Janet

"I want to tell you how much I miss my mother. Bits of her are still there. I miss her most when I'm sitting across from her." Candy Crowley

Janet, Smokey and Alzheimer’s

My mom has Alzheimer’s and the progression of the disease has robbed her of the ability to perform the simplest of tasks. She no longer knows the year or day of the week, where she lives or who to take care of her basic needs. That’s why she and Smokey live at Conifer House, a memory care facility in Corvallis, Oregon. We were so very lucky to find a place that would accept Smokey so that the two of them could stay together.

This blog is about my mom Janet, her cat Smokey and our journey with Alzheimer’s.  Many of the posts will be from Smokey’s “perspective.”
