My mother passed away unexpectedly over a month ago and my siblings and I had to find care for our father, who has dementia. We found a nice memory care facility after trying other options. He is getting settled now and we are focusing on cleaning out the house as well as other tasks. My whole life changed overnight and it's been hard for me. I've always lived close to them and in the past several years, I've been a caregiver. Running errands, shopping, doing whatever they needed. I was happy to help and my world revolved around what they needed. Although my father is still alive, my role in his care is not the same. I see him often and still go shopping for whatever essentials he needs, but it's not the same without my mother and what she needed. My weekends were spent grocery shopping and running other errands for them and now it's gone. We lost our mother and are faced with losing the house we all grew up in. And we feel like we lost our father too because it's just not the same seeing him in the memory care. I miss my mother terribly and miss the stability and routine of the life I had. It's only been a month and I know it will take time but I'd appreciate any insight and advice anyone can give me. Thank you.
