August 25, 2020 Taking care of your partner in the late stages is very hard, and almost always takes its toll on the caregiver/carepartner. It is a long goodbye, that wears us out, makes us feel guilty, makes us consider letting someone else take over the care. I would rather you think of it as the grieving process, rather than guilt for having to throw in the towel. Sometimes the caregiver has their health fail, before the person with the dementia. Then what happens? You are looking for an alternative in a trauma and crisis situation. That is the worst time to look for a community. We need to take on the task of searching for alternative care when you have time to visit places and decide which one will be the best fit. This show goes into to all the options you need to consider.
Hugs to you my friends, I know this is tough!
