I'm new to this. I am an adult child and caregiver to both my parents I suppose. My mom has dementia and is approaching the mid stages now. She was diagnosed officially almost two years ago. My dad is her main caregiver in their home and I go there several times a week to help with what I can. It's taking a toll on my dad. He seems as tho he's aged ten to twenty years over the last two years. He's not very kind or patient with mom at times which breaks my heart. My mom and dad were a very young early 70's couple when this nightmare became real. I am fortunate that I was able to take a voluntary reduction in work hours when my employer was facing financial trouble a year ago and at this time only work Fridays every week plus I am "on call" for additional hours which technically I can refuse and I often do. I want to be there for my parents. I told them I will be with them thru this time in their lives. I live half an hour away and I have two brothers who are of no help. I do most of the cleaning and lawn mowing for them, my sisters in law have helped with some meal prep. I take my mom to her weekly hair appt and attend doctor appts with them. What else can I do to make this easier to bear for my dad? I feel like no matter how much I'm there it never feels like enough. I worry about them constantly when I'm not there. My dad is still quite capable if taking care of most of the day to day things but I think it's the constant supervision and direction my mom needs plus the isolation since they are not able to get out and about to socialize like they used to that's wearing my dad down. What else can I do for them???
