My name is Joyce - Don and I have been married for 45 years. We have two children, Kristine and Michael. Don was just recently diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia and we have been trying to come to terms with this disease. He had had REM Disorder for over 3 years now. We love to work on family history, fishing, camping, travelling. We just spent 10 days in Ireland in September. Our children got us the trip for our 50th wedding anniversary, but we went early because of Don's illness.
Don and I both took care of his aunt in the 1990's, his mother in the 1990's and my parents in 2001-2004. We have both been caregivers for many years.
Need all the prayers we can get.
