I’m going home today from what will be my last holiday with my husband who has dementia.
It has not been what I would call a relaxing time. Those days are gone now and my job will be made a bit easier by staying home.
We are now at the stage where I must think of organising respite care, day care and a permanent home before it all gets too much for me.
Not going to be an easy task as he doesn’t want to do any of these things. He thinks all the problems are his , the poor me syndrome and I just breeze through life.
Spend a day in my shoes or an hour in my head to see how easy it is being a carer.
I really feel what you are going through,I have a sister in law going through the same thing. She is 88 and my brother is 92 and can be anything from loving to abusive ,He has never been abusive in his life As I said to her sooner or later she has to put herself first and make those arrangements my thoughts are with you
