I'm so heart broken. My Dad is living alone and is increasingly isolated and not managing. He's a difficult guy, slightly Aspergic, pessimistic, very particular and finds it hard to express love - he has his own way and I love him for it, but its not easy going. As his Alzheimer's is coming on he is wondering around in the middle of the night, getting his phone stolen, not eating properly, forgetting his pin, getting locked out his flat, getting more paranoid etc. Me and my sister (the only two support people) are worried and unsure how to move forward. He is well aware of his condition but finds it hard to receive help and has repeatedly sabotaged opportunities for support. I wish so much to support him live this out how he wants to, but I can barely get a picture of what that looks like out of him. The last thing I want to do is over power his will, in fact I think that would be the worst thing to do. I feel guilty not living closer. I feel guilty I don't call more. Sometimes I engage deeply, other times I tap out - I'm an emotionally driven person and it's A LOT to feel. I love him so much. It is so hard to watch someone suffer in this intangible and degrading way. To lose their sense of self. Im witnessing and feeling so much pain.
