My mother had dementia; one of the hardest things in my life was sitting with her while she slowly lost her memory of her entire family.
This scene packs a lot of emotion in a short amount of space. Brought tears to my eyes too.
Good topical piece. I could feel the emotion and picture scene. I liked the way you showed how he took time to be with his mom but showed the difficulty he experienced while doing so.

I did have to read the first sentence a couple of times. Maybe you could shorten it or break it up into more than one.

I enjoyed reading this and it kept my interest. Moving piece.
