This is my first experience as a caregiver. We just started having a home health lady come in once a week so that I can keep up with my bowling league one morning a week. He is very upset with me when I come home, says hurtful things, but about 15 to 20 minutes later is asks me to forgive him. An hour or so later he has no recollection of saying hurtful things. I just want him to be happy and know that I am here for him. I know this is part of dementia and he doesn't really understand what he is saying. Lately when he tries to tell me something he can't get the words out and gets upset and says forget it, and says I don't know what's wrong with me. I have several questions, but I will just start out with this post for now. Has any one had this situation and if so how did you handle it? Thanks for any info.
