Re: The Loss of my Father
My grandfather recently died and I was his caregiver. Towards the end, he had dementia, and I was one of the few that he trusted. Prior to that, my mom died of cancer. Grief has overwhelmed me. I know that after my grandfather died, I felt exhausted. As hard as at home health care can be, I'd do it all over again... I have no easy answers. I'm still going through the grief. I hope this helps to know that you aren't alone, in your struggle. I came close to going to a caregiver's support group. Reading your post helped me to feel less isolated. I, too, keep going over how I could have done things differently, to make him more comfortable. You have my empathy.
