My father has Alzheimers. My mother is the caretaker of him, plus she has respite care coming in 4 days a week for 4 to 5 hours a day. I am in a constant worry about him. It is almost obsessive. I know he is getting the best care they are giving him. My mother is a little "hyper" so of course if she tells him to do something and he doesn't comprehend it she will get upset and raise her voice with him sometimes instead of walking away for a couple minutes and then try it again (which usually works) When she raises her voice, he then gets upset. I know it is very hard for the caretaker. I am sometimes on the phone with her when this happens and it upsets me very much. I probably just need to hang up, but then I am calling back 10 minutes later to see if things are ok. Am I crazy to be like that?!!!??? I am always worried about him falling or getting sick or getting that call from my mother that he needs to go to hospital for something. I feel like sometimes it is taking over my life right now. I know you can't hover over him or put him in a "bubble", but its a constant worry. Anyone else feel like this? I know you can't control everything. I need my mind to be at ease somewhat--I have a 10 year old and a 4 year old that needs my attention.
