Artful Living

giving care

I am back from Monaco where I was visiting my in-laws.  Giving care and attention to those who are aging around me, means so much to me.

My Father-in-law has dementia and while it was not an easy to see him in this state, it was wonderful for me to express how much love I have for him.  I tried to rekindle flames by sharing stories and affection.
At times there was laughter and at times some tears but it was for me a very valuable lesson on life.
Over the years, he has always shown such support and kindness to me and our family.  Giving care to our elders is vital to letting them know just how much they mean to us.  How do you give care to your elders  around you near and far?
