We never know how she will be. It’s so tough to visit and make sure my When I Drink I’m Not Drunk Beer’s Drunk Shirt dad is ok too. He’s so sad. I hate this illness. Hi joey. I too cared for my mother through her last stage of dementia. She did stay in assisted living for awhile but just got so bad they couldn’t keep her. I brought her home and cared for her 24/7 until dec. 11, 2016 just to months after her 86th birthday.

Oh how hard it was to see her go down everyday. I miss her so much. I couldn’t leave her to just die in a nursing home. I spent her last 6 months just pampering her and holding her until her very last breath. My heart died with her. She was my mother, the sweetest, kindest most loving and understanding lady. So glad you are doing this for everyone to see.
Please make sure that we get the word out that if you see your elderly parents acting different be suspicious that they need to be checked for dementia. Don’t just go see them and leave. Remember they took care of you and now it’s time to give back and give them a loving place to be with a caring loved one to make sure they stay safe. Dementia is an awful disease and those who suffer with it can not help how they are.

God be with all families who struggle with a family member. It is very hard to go through but i will never ever regret taking that time to be with her. God bless. Oh and when i see you cry i cry with you. Every time i left her room i cried. And i cried in front of her too. It’s hard not too. Just love her ok. And continue grieving. Until a person has been through this they will never understand the emotional damage it does to the caretaker.
If you see your loved one go from brilliance to crazy and unable to function you think you can deal with it with tolerance and patience. It is more about surviving. And the loneliness you feel at the loss of that loved ones behavior and inability to touch reality is like being stranded on mars with no hope of rescue. I am going through this now. After taking care of mom for 14 years, i had to place her in a facility.
I physically could not care for her (alone) any longer. She still knows who i am but it is impossible to have a conversation with her. She said my grandfather who has been dead for 40 years lives in the facility too. She cannot walk and is often very emotional. She does not recognise my When I Drink I’m Not Drunk Beer’s Drunk Shirt, but does know who my son and his 7 yr old daughter is.
