My dad has the onset of dementia. It has been gradual over 2-3 years. He lived at home with my mom, but she was unable to cope with the changes and started to become somewhat verbally abusive toward him. I moved him to an ALF 8 months ago. They've been married for 50+ years and mom is now living alone. Today she told me that she no longer loves him and she doesn't really care what happens to him. Mind you, he is still early-mid stage, his personality hasn't changed much, he's conversational and ambulatory. Is mom's reaction "normal" for a spouse under these circumstances? I feel like she's really kicking him to the curb.
