Hello, this is a new year, and I want to make the best of my caregiving. I feel very very tired, and am having difficulty in dealing with my alzheimer patient, whom didn't ask for this disease, but as a paid caregiver, there is no such thing as a perfect situation. This is pretty good, with the exception of dealing with her angry outbursts, which I realize have nothing to do with me. She is only 65 and probably internally pretty angry about her alzheimer's. I know within 6 months' her daughter is going to place her in assisted living, so my feeling is that this has worked for 7 months, 6 more month's and then I move on. I am just very very emotionally tired, and I still show her the love she deserves. Any thoughts on how to cope and keep going as her loving care provider, when unless I initiate conversation there is none. Beyond that, she doesn't understand anything I am saying. I guess what I do well, is that I am there for her, I know her better than I did at the beginning, and I smile a lot.
Advice would be great
