Response to ‘My Father is in the last stage of dementia’ on AgingCare

I haven’t visited my favorite caregiving website as much as I used to. It’s still too painful. But this morning, I did.  And there was a question from someone whose father had dementia, and I found myself answering her question with more detail than I had anticipated.

Be warned that I cried mightily as I wrote, and that although I hope this post will instruct rather than distress you my Reader, it is one I have to share here as well.

Here is the link:

My answer to “My father is in the last stage of dementia.”

If you do read the post, please let me know what you think below.  I receive so few comments on my writing, and I don’t really advertise, but I feel strongly that the only way we will change our culture of growing old is to share.  Caregiving can be such a solitary road to travel.  You may also contact me through email. (See ‘About Me’ page.)
