i just wondered how carers full or part time find a healthy way to maintain their relationships with their other half ..with the added pressure of dealing with a love one with dementia .what strategies they may use so home life is kept as normal as possible . For most carers , they will be looking after their mum or dad ,, but their partner has no deep emotional attachment to their in laws . they may feel sorry or sad to see their inlaw suffer with dementia , but they cant be expected to feel the same ! my partner is not an invisible and is really supportive , but it must be hard for some carer's partners , as it is not their mum or dad suffering with dementia the whole suffering dementia causes , is like throwing a pebble into a pond , and the ripples go all the way across the pond .. everyone is affected from the poor person who goes threw dementia , and how they feel and dont understand what tricks their brain is playing on them . to their nearest and dearest who care for them . and how their nearest and dearest cope . and how their nearest and dearest are affected to !!!!
