I dread my visits now. I visit my mom weekly in the nursing home. My visits are usually quick, lasting only 10 to 30 minutes. She has Dementia and we don't have a lot to talk about. I bring her a small gift each week but she complains about what I didn't bring or how bad the nurses are to her (which I know is not true). I am having a hard time adjusting to her condition and never knowing if she will know me when she sees me or not. Then she makes me feel guilty becasue I don't visit longer. I try to explain how busy I am, but she pouts like a small child. Am I a bad person for making such short visits?? I love her but it kills me to see her the way she is. How do I deal with the guilt?
