Mother and Son's Journey with Dementia - The day started out good until I started asking my Mother questions. One question led to another until I heard the words that no child ever wants to hear. When I started this video series I made a commitment to my Mother, caregivers and other people suffering from Dementia that we would make a difference and show the world the suffering that's involved with this disease. I plan on taking this video series all the way to the end. The people that are suffering and have suffered from Dementia deserve that everyone know the pain and suffering they have been through. I know I'm not the first child to go through this with their Mother or Father and I won't be the last. I now know the loss and pain they felt when this horrible day finally came. This day I will never forget. We hope everyone will learn more about Dementia during this journey.

Blackwood : "Crying is not a sign of weakness. Since the day we were born, crying was always been a sign that we're alive." Stay strong my friend! This video touched my heart...

Holly Hocks : Even though she can’t quite remember where you fit in her memory she still feels love towards you and reached out several times to touch you. Memories are like chasing smoke for people with dementia. You are a good son

netterboo sicily : Even in her condition she still shows emphathy asking if your crying....and that shows your mom is still in there.

Dana Kocourková : Holy moly. I was crying through out the whole video but when she reached for your hand at 21:00 to caress you when when you were sad....that just broke my heart. Although She cannot process it, she loves you.

Joe Joe : The support from everyone is overwhelming. Thank you so much everyone for your comments and encouraging words. I know I was asking a lot of questions but I was in a panic thinking she didn't know who I was. This was the first time I realized she might not know who I am. All I wanted her to say was she knew I was her Son, but those words never came out.

tankmaster1018 : I visited my Grandmother today at the nursing home to try to surprise her for Easter. She has had Alzheimer's for a few years but I had no idea how far it had progressed, and experienced one of the biggest reality checks today so far in my life... She had absolutely no idea who I was, and even more devastating was the fact that she seemed scared by me since I was just so much larger then she was. I tried to go for a walk with her outdoors and she just started crying uncontrollably repeating she "just can't do this anymore" and telling me to leave her alone. It fucking snapped my heart in two man... I literally had to get a nurse to watch her while I went to the bathroom and just lost it for a few minutes. The feeling of watching someone who used to love you and know so much about you just look at you completely blankly, with absolutely no recognition or even worse, fear is just the most heart wrenching thing I have ever gone through in my 24 years. And this is my grandmother... I can't even imagine if being your mother. I thought being buried alive or drowning was my greatest fear. Not anymore, now its developing Alzheimer's myself or ever worse, having my parents develop it and watching it strip them of everything that defined them until nothing is left. I am so sorry man. I can't even imagine the strength it took to record and post this. You have my never ending respect man and I hope you are doing okay. Never realized how devastating Dementia related conditions were until it happened to my family too...

Ashley Caissie : Omg I feel so bad for u... I cried while I watched this 😢

Psalmuel Schon-Meier : The heart of a Mother remembers what the mind forgets.. Amidst all the confusion- she never fails to show and express her love.

Slava mih : Держись мужик

Jamie Lewis : It hurts my heart when she says, "I think it's my brain..." 😢😢😢

Summer Thyme Gonzalez : She knows you are her baby, a part of her essence. That’s why she keeps telling you she loves you so much. She just doesn’t understand the concept of son or father or sister for that matter. It’s more of a language problem she is having trouble with. But believe me, how can she ever “forget” you? You are a wonderful person.

Becky Moore : It's amazing how she senses when you are sad or upset. She may not remember a lot but she is deeply connected to you. Mother and son connected beyond memory. Heart connection. This must have been extremely difficult and heartbreaking.

Jamie Kate Adoc : I'm sorry you have to go through this. I am a nurse caring for dementia patients and it's heartbreaking for me to see them decline. I see them on their good and bad days. But to see it from a family member's perspective is more heartbreaking. I'm praying for you and your family. Stay strong :)

Liz Payroll Queen : 66 is so young

Crystal Bisel : The mother's love is there...you can see it in her. The memory isn't there but her love is. Hold onto that! 🙏

CyberDemon : Держись. В России тоже тебя смотрят. Hold on in Russia to you watching.

Sam Jacks : Брат. Привет тебе из России. Мы с тобой!

Mary Carlone : I’m having a Molly day. I miss her. Now she knows who you are from Heaven. 🦋

Crispy Life : Whoever dislike these video you are a heartless fool

denis dralec : This is......painful. But look at 20:42-20:45 "I'm not worried, I just want you to be happy". Why on earth would she care about happiness of a person she doesn't know ?? As someone before me has said - her heart knows.

OloLosha : я взрослый мужик но я плачу каждый раз как смотрю твоё видео! держись дружище. у тебя большое и доброе сердце. очень жаль что это происходит с твоей мамой!

Jewel Haines : I'm so sorry. This disease is so unfair. You are a wonderful son. ❤

Zgathers : I’m so hurt for you I cried with you I’m so sorry I’m so so sorry

Narek : I just watched one of your videos translated to Russian and decided to check your channel. I have never ever shed a tear while browsing the internet, but this video had me crying for a whole hour. It was so hard for me to see you, a strong man start crying, I could not hold myself. I hope all the best thing to you, your familly and everyone suffering from this syndrome. Love from Russia

semika green : no matter what's going on she knows when her baby is sad

Belinda Anne Diab : I can see how hard it was for her to "want" to answer your questions with the "right" answers..and I see that she would "Pretend" to no what you were talking about so she could try to hold onto some self pride I guess. She must have been an amazing mother to have raised such a wonderful loving caring son like yourself Joe.. so hold your head up high mate.. sh er is "in you" & of course with you Everywhere you go. ♡♡♡ she may have forgotten alot but you can still see the Love she had for you in her eyes. "LOVE NEVER DIES" ♡♡♡♡♡♡ MOLLY = A TRUE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH!!

MegaErik : seeing a man sobbing like a boy who lost his mother… it shakes you

Kelly Martin : When Joe said it is like his mom died, it is actually worse. He is in a constant state of mourning for his mother and the way she was before dementia took over her life. When some one dies it is terrible, but you grieve and eventually it gets easier because there is closure. I have been a nurse for 20 years and worked in dementia units and it is one of the most horrible things to see people go through. I can not imagine not remembering giving birth to my daughters and taking care of them. This is a tragic disease and much more funding is needed for research.

Catherine T : One of the hardest things I’ve watched in a while... I’m sorry 😞😔💔

Jacob S : She was trying so hard. It's so sad. She could tell he was upset and it's like part of her still felt motherly care for him and was trying to comfort him.

sandraenglandful : This was really hard to watch, bless all of you❤️ it makes me miss my Mommy so much😔

The Solitary Outdoorsman : Oh god, dude... I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.

Ромашка ТВ : Господи Боже. Такого даже самому заклятому врагу не пожелаешь. Только вчера с мамой поругались, а вроде такой пустяк был... Цените ваших родных и близких, никто не знает, что может случиться с ними. Держись, не унывай. Самое главное, что она ещё жива. Мы с тобой, всё будет хорошо😭💕

mamasug : It's heartbreaking how clearly lost and jumbled her memories are, but how instinctive and accurate her mothers intuition is that her son is sad. Her mind may be struggling to remember, but you can't dismiss her heart is still connected to her baby...it's lovely to see a son so gentle and kind to his mother.

Martha A : I LOVE your Mom... She makes me smile..

FEROZSS : Your voice killed my soul at the end.

Lena Butler : I lost my mom just a couple of weeks ago. She was only 58 and a second stroke finished her. She was in coma for more than a week and somehow your video reminded me of how it is like standing there not being able to reach out. Stay strong.

Miranda House : Absolutely one of the hardest things that I have ever watched. I'm so sorry you're going through this. You and your mother are in my prayers.

lulabell 79 : Dear sweet Joey, I know exactly how you feel. My mother was a young 54 years old when early onset dementia reared it's ugly head! And we saw it happening slowly, but we wanted it to be something that would pass or something a doctor could fix. I buried my mother at the young age of 61 years old. She passed away on Christmas Eve in 2015. There hasn't been a day go by that I didn't miss her and long for her to be alive and well. When I dream of her, she is always the "normal mom," in good health. Breaks my heart all over again when I wake up. I urge everyone that reads this to enjoy your time with your mothers while they are in good health! What I wouldn't give to go back and spend more time with my mom. Joey, bless you for your love and dedication to your mother and going along on this journey by her side. Your commitment to this cause to spread awareness about dementia is a beautiful thing and I believe it will make a positive difference in many many lives, helping those affected by this disease to better understand and cope. Rebecca "Becky" Lou Wagner. July 3, 1954 - December 24, 2015. Rest in Heaven sweet Mama. You were the best Mama I could've ever hoped for. You'll live on in our hearts forever! I love you and I'll see you again one sweet day. ~Laura

а б : Конечно, это очень тяжело. Берегите себя!

Инко гнито : мне 25 лет, я смотрел и плакал :( Бедолага парень

Kay B : Your Mom gave you the best years of her life, and has given you life itself....it's more important to remember who 'she' is...... instead of short one word answers....you should tell her the story of the life you spent together....... it will help with her nightmares, and these stories of your lives will be a sweet ending, not a sad one of frustration as she tries her damnedest to put it all into place. Try writing and reading a book about her life, and read it to her...it will bring her great comfort. Thanks for sharing 'her' journey, and your love for one another, no matter 'who' she thinks you are. She trusts you..she feels your pain, wants to make it all better...that's what moms do........

Nourah Mumeen : Every mother should wish for a son like you!

Aussie Flag : Your mum knows who you are in her heart. I can see the love she has for you Joey. Her tender mothers touch. Take care of yourself Joey x
