I've written a few times here usually talking about how difficult caring for my two elderly parents has been. My Mom has dementia, my Dad doesn't.
Last week we moved my Mom into memory care. I've been crying ever since. You may have read my posts. Read about the deep unhappiness as a result of 24/7 caregiving. Needless to say, I was not prepared for the avalanche of emotions that just keep rolling over me. I don't think I've ever experienced a pain this deep.
Please, if anyone has gone through this can you advise me? Does this ever get better? Is this pain going to be with me forever? Because, in all honesty, it's about a billion times worse than I felt with her at home.
