    Reported by:

    I have the conviction of persistently wondering what a person with dementia thinks about. It’s utterly haunting to live with someone you’ve loved your entire life, have no idea who you are. I’ve become infatuated with curiosity over what my Dad “thinks”. Does he think? I watch so closely for every single reaction...desperate to will something within him. I miss my Dad so much. Yet, he’s physically right in front of me. I am living with a ghost. #livelikeitsyourlast

    "I miss my Dad so much. Yet, he’s physically right in front of me." A poignant quote to match this powerful image. The eye contact forces the viewer to confront the idea of living with dementia, and loving someone who is living with this disease.
