     I live with my father who has Dementia and my brother helps me care for him. Some nights I can't sleep from all the worrying. Right now I am supposed to be on a break for a week and I can't stop thinking about how he is doing. When we had a caregiver come in and take him out for a few hours we waited impatiently, like new parents. I want to take a break, but I want to be with him too. It's hard!
