Even though she passed away almost a year ago I still can't stop feeling guilty. I lived with her and she had dementia. I got so frusterated, I yelled at her to stop ,for example, when she melted a pot on the stove when left to run some errands. Then she would apologize and I'd feel so guilty. Toward the end I could not leave her side only getting a little help from my family. I tried to explain to her that some of the things she was doing were unsafe and could no longer do them. This does not work In the later stages of dementia. I know I did the best I could, knowing very little about dementia at the time, but still the guilt and remorse continue. Have any of you had similar experiences? What did you do?
