How do you deal with the loss of someone who has dementia. I cry almost every day. It is so hard to see her this way. She doesn't remember things, acts childlike. I know this is all from this horrible disease. But even though she seems to be happy, I can see the sad changes in her, which makes me feel so upset. I wish she was the way she use to be but I know it is what it is. It is so so sad to watch her. I love her with everything in me. How do I cope?
