Welcome to Steps for Stella
Please join me and my family as we Step for Stella. As many of you know, my mom fought Alzheimers for many years. Over the years Alzheimers Services has given us overwhelming support from a Social Worker, to numerous lunch n learns, to support groups, to the use of a wheelchair and more. Alzheimers Services of the Capital Area helped us to manage my mothers disease by preparing us for every stage. The following poem helps to understand what Alzheimers and other dementia patients are feeling.
Do not ask me to remember
Dont try to make me understand,
Let me rest and know you're with me,
kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I'm confused beyond your concept,
I am sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you
to be with me at all cost.
Do not lose your patience with me,
Do not scold or curse or cry.
I can't help the way I'm acting,
Can't be different though I try.
Just remember that I need you,
That the best of me is gone,
Please don't fail to stand beside me,
Love me 'til my life is done.
