Anak ni Caridad Sanchez naluha nang tawaging ‘love’ ng inang may dementia

Emosyonal si Cathy Babao nang tawagin siyang “love” ng kanyang inang veteran actress na si Caridad Sanchez.

Dahil sa dementia, kapatid o best friend daw kasi minsan ang tingin sa kanya ng kanyang nanay.

Kaya naman nangilid ang luha ni Cathy nang bigla siyang tawaging “love” ni Caridad.

“Sometimes mom thinks we are sisters, or that I’m her best friend. Occasionally, I’m still her daughter and she will call me by my childhood nickname, Kate. I’ve always said that in the dementia journey, it is only the mind that malfunctions but never the heart.

“Today over lunch, as I sometimes do, to help jog her memory, I asked her who I was in relation to her, wondering if today I would be daughter, sister, or BFF. ‘What are we? Who am I to you?’ I asked her. She looked me straight in the eye, in between bites of her favorite JT’s inasal, she replied, ‘Love. You are love. I love you very much.’

“I got so choked up. It was an answer that I did not expect. I held back my tears and said, ‘I love you too, mom.’

The journey of loving and caring for a parent or a loved one with dementia is never easy. There’s a reason why it’s called the long goodbye. I believe that God in His infinite wisdom and goodness, grants us grace filled moments to soothe the heart to help us carry on,” kuwento niya sa isang IG post.

2020 nang isapubliko ni Cathy ang pagkaka-diagnose sa kanyang ina na may dementia taong 2015. (IS)
