    This is so sad. It’s hard to continuously monitor dementia patients unless they have 24/7 care in home or within an assisted living facility. Such care can be expensive. This sweet woman never intended on her ending result. God bless her and her family.

    Breaks my heart. With having Dementia, she probably wondered off, fell in the river and drowned. I took care of my mother for three years, and she had dementia, so I understand how this can possibly happen. Praying for the family and friends.
