| | Re: AAARRRRGGGH, or, the Eldercare thing
Not our parents.. but, my husbands, adopted dad's uncle. (He always referred to him as "gramps".)
He had to live with us from 94-98. Passed about a year now.
I know it sounds horrid, but no, I do not really miss him. I mean, yeah, every once in a while I think about Mike & feel bad for him.. that his end years had to be like they were. I know he's in a better place now.
It was EXTREMELY frustrating dealing with the daily care of him. Some days would be better.. Other days, gosh, You just can't do what you want to!
Elderly dimentia can be so hard to deal with. They can get so angry and bitter & lash out at you. Just remember, that often they do not have control over thier situation,.
