Alzheimer Patient’s Prayer

As an Activities Director, other healthcare professional, or caregiver here is something you may want to remember

Senior Home Care Blog
Pray for me I was once like you
Be kind and loving to me that’s how I would have treated you
Remember I was once someone’s parent or spouse
I had a life and a dream for the future
Speak to me; I can hear you even if I don’t
understand what you are saying
Speak to me of things in my past of which I can still relate
Be considerate of me, my days are such a struggle
Think of my feelings because I still have them and
can feel pain. Treat me with respect because
I would have treated you that way
Think of how I was before I got Alzheimer’s
I was full of life; I had a life, laughed and loved you
Think of how I am now, my disease distorts
my thinking, my feelings, and my ability to respond
but I still love you even if I can’t tell you
Think about my future because I used too
Remember I was full of hope for the future just like you are now
Think how it would be .......Reaad the whole prayer
