     I have been caring for my 75 yr old father in my home for 3 yrs. He has stage 6 dementia. Recently I feel all do is fix messes all day long. The most recent is "peeing" anyplace but where he should. I think it is b/c he senses my frustration. I try to figure things for him to do but he refuses to participate. I exist a day at a time and try to stay positive.
