More Information
My mom is a 24 hour caregiver for my dad who has dementia. Every day she dresses him, washes him, feeds him, everything. She has chosen this even though people frequently comment she should just put him in a nursing home. She doesn't accept a lot of tangible help because she's afraid something will go wrong when someone else is caring for him.

She doesn't like sympathy or sadness. She just wants to be supported in her decision to care for him and feel like she's doing a good job (and she does an AMAZING job).

I'm requesting letters or cards of prayer and support, maybe even from someone who has been there? I try to always reaffirm she's doing the right thing for him but I think it would help her to hear from others. Thank you in advance.

    Thank you all so much! I'm so incredibly grateful for all of your offers of love and support. I believe I was able to get to everyone but if I somehow missed anyone, please email me.

    Thanks again! Have a wonderful holiday season!!

    As a hospice social worker, I've witnessed the caregiver exhaustion your mom is surely feeling. You are so good to support her in her decision to keep him home. I'd love to send her some love and encouragement. xoxo

    I would love to participate in this. With a Mother who has Lewy Body Dementia and full time care, as well, I know how it taps out a family and especially the primary care giver and I also know how gross it feels to have people pity you.

    Please send an email to [email protected] with contact information.

    Thanks!

    Hi, Karen! My mom was my dad's careprovider when he had Alzheimer's until his death in May 2016. I would be delighted to send her a card. I will email you now. xoxo

    I’d love to send your Mom a card, my husband had two strokes and is disabled and suffers from aphasia. Now that I’m retired, I’m his caregiver. I understand.
