Random Quote #20

“… each victim of dementia inflicts his own unique form of pain on those who love him (…) the memories and the dreadful toll drag on, and from these the release can only be partial. A life that as been well lived and a shared sense of happiness and accomplishment are ever after seen through the smudged glass of its last few years. For the survivors, the concourse of existence has forever become less bright and less direct.”

S. B. Nuland, in How we die: reflections on life’s final chapter
