Dementia

My mother has dementia. She stays in the nursing home now but we can’t see her for a long time due to the Corona virus.
The last month we took her to the hospital. She looked happy to see us after a long time. She was surprisingly thin and looked different.
She was beautiful and lively mother in my memory. She wore makeup and always took care about her appearance. She was my ideal.
Now she can’t walk nor have a meal by herself. Her hearing gets worse form aging and she always speaks with loud voice. She looks no longer human.
I feel she is myself after thirty years.
