Manchester Center Mall that is the name of my mom's favorite place. She visits that place everyday 365 days, she'll go not just once she'll go two and even 3 times in a day. Manchester Center is 3.4 miles from home, my little mom she walks going and coming she used to take the bus but not really anymore. You see sometimes when she does take the bus she gets lost, she wont recongize her surroundings, she doesnt recongize most of her surroundings anymore. Alzheimers has taken that away from her and it keeps taking and taking.

My mother, Evelyn Bernstein, is 89 years old. After a hip fracture in 2009, my family moved her from San Diego to Los Angeles, to be closer to us. We began to notice cognitive changes, which have increased to a state of substantial memory loss, delusional thinking, and disorientation. My mother was not only bright and articulate, she had the sharpest memory of anyone we knew. I am a psychologist in private practice, and I teach medical students, but nothing in my training or years of experience have prepared me for confronting what is known as an "ambiguous loss" of a loved one.

MY MASK

This is about my mother, Thelma, and the killer called Alzheimer's. My mother has end stage ALZHEIMER'S. None of the medication helped her. She remains at home with her handicapped husband due to medicaid denying her medical insurance which would pay for her to go to a nursing home. This is a family in crisis. I hope this can help someone.
