Hi! I have been caring for both parents for a number of years in their differing stages of alzheimers and dementia. They are both at a care facility now, sharing a room which is great. They have been married for 59 years and have never been separated. (This website is huge. No doubt I will get used to it!)
I keep waiting for things to get easier or feel some relief or resolve......it doesn't happen does it? The future scares me.....the thought of either of them in their last stages. Some days I feel normal(whatever that is) and other days, overwhelmed and on another grief stricken, guilt ridden roller coaster ride. I need to step off more!
