What happens when we lose our loved one after years of living with dementia? How did writing about living with dementia help Melissa Geiser to deal with her grief? What can be learned from years of watching a loved one die from dementia?


Melissa Geiser is a blogger and the only child of her mother Pat. At the end of 2013, Pat’s friends started calling Melissa when they became worried about Pat. Pat had been living in the same house for over 30 years, but suddenly she would ask her friends to lead her home after she finished working out at the gym.


Melissa had just started back to college and her marriage was struggling, so this situation with her mother couldn’t have come at a worse time. In the end, Melissa felt she had to move her mother to Oklahoma to be near her.

Melissa has written a blog to help others who were also experiencing loving someone with dementia entitled “Departure from Logic.” She is planning on using her blog to write a book to help others living with loved ones who are suffering from dementia. Today’s show is “When Your Loved One Dies from Dementia” and our Guest Host is Nancy Jensen.
