You can take great consolation from being there at the end. I found the time I spent at my mum's deathbed precious. She was safe in bed; I wasnt worried about her as I was at home, in case she fell again. I think time spent at a loved one's side like that is really special. There will still be dificult days ahead- my mum passed away at the end of November and after feeling relief at being spared the constant anxiety over her, now I think back to the times before dementia. You need to remember the good things. Take care
Thank you for your reply. It means a lot and your words are so true. This is how I feel. Grateful that he waited for me and like you also a huge relief that I could be by his side. Your kind words mean a lot and my condolences to you too

Please keep posting here whenever you feel the need as we know what you are going through. My dad waited for all three of his children to arrive as well.
