I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to handle the constant state of mourning one experiences when they are taking care of someone with later stage Alzheimer's disease? I am finding it harder and harder to even want to be in the same room with her. I know I have to so I can help take care of her needs, but I look at her and just shake my head most of the time wondering how it got this bad for her and for us. I feel grief every day from this, and now I am wondering if I will even cry when it's over or will I just be in a state of shock? I think I will feel relief too because it will all be over finally. It may sound harsh, but I feel that nobody should have to live in that state of mind and with all the physical problems she has. How do I deal with being around her constantly and not go crazy myself from the sad situation it has become? Any tips would be appreciated. Thank you.
