Usually it's in the afternoon. Now it's starting in the morning too. I know it's the dementia, but how do I keep myself sane? My husband & I care for dad 24/7. We cannot carry on a conversation or watch TV.
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
If she is now a wandering risk, you need to address that, too.
It was just enough to calm her nerves and help her cope. You said both your husband and you are taking care of your dad. Hopefully, you both take time to get out even individually if there is no one else to take over - you need a break and it does help, but it is not easy as you have to return and back to the rambling. It is mentally draining and I feel for you. Hopefully his doctor can come up with some solutions via medication. It is worth a try to keep your sanity. Take care.
