My dad dating my mother law
Even if we lived in a state where choosing death is an option, Mummy would have to possess the mental capacity to make this crucial decision and then personally carry it out. *Photo Purchased From i Stock Photo Tagged as: aging, aging parents, Alzheimer's blog, Alzheimer's disease, care giving, caregiver, cognitive abilities, cognitive function, Dating Dementia, dementia, elderly, end of life, end of life decisions, how to die, older adult, older parents, sandwich generation I feel the same way you do and I do believe in God, I just do not understand why he would let people live in this horrible state, it is emotionally and financially draining on their family.
Sadly, she is far beyond the point of making any decisions, especially the choice to end her own life. She doesn’t have a lot of money and my Dad passed last year he left a little but NOT enough to afford her nursing home and she had to go because she was not taking care of herself.
She is nothing more than a ZOMBIE sucking all the money out of us for no good reason she brings NOTHING to our lives but resentment and hate! My grandfather (age 83) has just been placed in a rehab facility for what appears to be the end of his life, he is not eating and forgotten how to swallow food. I am 23 and since I was 13, he has been living with my parents as they are his full time caretakers.
She lovingly cared for my dad — who also had the disease — at home for many years.My mom cries constantly and lashes out at my grandfather, and the stress was so intense I think it contributed to her breast cancer diagnosis last year. I was relieved to see him comfortable in his hospital bed in a deep sleep surrounded by family because it was the way he had wanted to go, right? For at least 3 years he has been wasting away on their couch.When I say he was comatose, I am not saying it lightly.Simon Hi Simon, Thank you so much for reading my blog and for your comment.
