Exhausted 

none Re: grief in the dementia patient

Thank you for your kind words. I guess I just feel like I am taking my Dad's life away from him but really I'm just trying to keep him and other safe. The wreck he had could have been so much more tragic.

I guess the fact that my Dad is not screaming and causing a scene to get out of the assisted living facility may be a major clue that he either knows something is not right and he needs to be there or he is just settling in. I keep praying for his mind to just settle in and just accept it as his new life and home.

It seems also that his diabetes is changing. He is now on insulin shots compared to a pill. I have a feeling that his physical health is going down hill and that will get him before his mental health problems will. I just get the gut feeling that he will not be alive but a few more years. Oh... this is just so hard.

I'm so glad I found this forum.

Exhausted but trying to relax a bit.
