I see my love, every day.
We talk about when she
was having radiation and chemo,
for treatment of lung cancer.
The good news; Cancer is in remission,
Bad news, early onset dementia.
I believe this was triggered by
or accelerated by the chemo treatment.
We saw that early, when she
couldn't remember our anniversary
and she was unable to balance
the checkbook or pay bills.
Her mother had dementia, in her late 80's.
I am seeing similar behavior
in my love. She can't remember names
or the names of objects. She does remember
one name and that is our Granddaughter.
Confuses the names of our two sons
and our close friends.
She told me that she didn't know my name.
Evenings are the worst. There is a tendency to wander
or get in a discussion that is close to an argument.
Then I'll hear "Put me in a home.'
I tell her no, that's not going to happen.
There is no logic or reasoning present.
I'll talk to her and she won't hear me,
so I raise the volume of my voice and
then she tells me, "you don't need to shout.
Tonight, in the space of 10 minutes, she
asked me if it was raining. I replied No.
That upset her as she said, " you know I
can't hear.
Sorry for the whining.

Public Charge:  How will immigrant families be impacted?

Please join presenters Charlie Mitchell, Senior Attorney at Northwest Health Law Advocates ( and Eric Holzapfel, Deputy Director, Immigration Manager and DOJ-accredited representative at  Entre Hermanos (  to discuss and learn more about:

- The concerns that immigrant families and communities are raising now that the Trump Administration has issued a "final" public charge rule that is scheduled to go into effect in mid-October.

- The current public charge law, what is and is not going to change, who will and who won't be subject to a public charge test, and the lawsuits seeking to prevent the changes from taking effect

- The current rules about the liabilities of "sponsors" who signed agreements to support immigrants, the "deeming" of sponsors' income to those immigrants, and information about how the government may change enforcement of those agreements.

- What and how you might communicate about these changes with concerned clients and community members
