The Life Lesson I’m Learning from My Mama’s Journey with Alzheimer’s

Until very recently, I hadn’t openly talked about the fact that my mama (a.k.a. the lovely Mama Bhasin) is unwell. Among other serious health concerns, my mama is living with Alzheimer’s, a neurologic disorder that affects the brain and results in a slow and steady decline over time.

As you can imagine, this is a gut-wrenching experience, even without the added stress of navigating her care throughout COVID. My heart is filled with heaviness, fear and sadness when I think about what she’s going through now and for what’s to come.

As I’ve started sharing my family’s journey, I’ve received so much love and support from others in similar situations (thank you for reaching out!), which has led me to reflect on this experience. In this video, I share the very important life lesson that’s helping me get through this difficult time.

I know I’m not the only one on a journey like this, and if you are too, know that I’m sending you lots of positive energy. You are not alone!⁠
