Mom Suffering From Severe Dementia Gets Her Memory Back – After Son Puts Her On Special Diet
Dementia Sufferer's Memories Flood Back When She Reunites With Sister After 78 Years
The last time Elizabeth Keller and Shirley Bridge saw each other was 78 years ago, when Keller was eight and Bridge was two, right before the sisters were separated by family services in 1937. They were finally reunited, the only two surviving siblings of eight, at the Cameo Nursing Home in Milwaukee, WI.
Despite Keller's severe dementia, the meeting with her little sis proved that some of her memories aren't lost forever. Daniel Riley, Keller's son, said, "As sick as my mom is...she really responded. Meeting her sister, her sister's children–it just cut right through the sickness."
Though they spent years apart, the sisters both had a common interest in the medical field while growing up–Keller became a medical assistant and Bridge became a nurse. They shared their work stories, and they reminisced about life together with Bridge's two daughters and Keller's son by their sides.
Riley said of the emotional experience, "It just shows you family is the most important thing in life when it comes down to it."
While talking and displaying old photos, Bridge shared with Keller and Riley that after they were separated she was adopted twice and she had to change her name multiple times. This, perhaps, was part of the reason it was difficult for the pair to reconnect. But finding each other has now opened doors for the next generation to keep in touch. "New or old family, it's always good to have," Riley said.
