The New Old Age

I found an interesting article on the New York Times blog on aging today. The title is “Her Own Kind of Absence”

It was 8:30 a.m. Only weeks earlier, she would have been in the kitchen by 8:30, asking me what was on the agenda for the day. Now, she wouldn’t move, her thin, knobby fingers resting on the coverlet.

I didn’t know if my 93-year-old mother was depressed or if her dementia had suddenly worsened. She had been living in my upstate New York home for a year and a half, ever since I had convinced her she could no longer live alone.


Whenever I see an article about either Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s it tend to click through to read it. The articles on the New York Times are always worth reading.

It is worth reading. Here is the link to the entire article.

I have also added the link to “The New Old Age” on my Blogroll list. See the lower right hand corner of the screen. The “Blog Roll” is my list of Blogs that I find interesting. I will be editing and updating over the next day or so.
