We lived only five miles apart and, as I drove, my mind raced with thoughts and possibilities as to what could be wrong. The previous afternoon during our daily phone chat, my father had shared some of the details of what he purchased at the grocery store.
At that time, my father was a very healthy and independent year-old. He was still driving and managing all household needs, including my mother's physical care, extremely well. During the call, he happily reported picking up an extra cantaloupe for me along with a few other food items that I could pick up at my convenience. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary during that conversation, so this anxious call from my mother was a bit.

Create a List. We hear a lot about senior abuse and rightly so. But what about family caregiver abuse? Let's give family caregiver abuse the same attention and support as we do for seniors. When we are caregiving we begin thinking 'what's wrong with me'. Believe me, it's not you. The problem is dementia and you're at the receiving end. In the initial stages of dementia, it's difficult to separate the disease from your loved one. Because their personality is still there but dementia pops in and out. You never know what's coming at you.
Very little is written or said about how it will impact you, the caregiver. Unfortunately, I had to create solutions on the 'fly' for 18 months. I kept turning for answers and getting very little advice, if any at all. There was no guide book. I figured others must be having the same difficulties that I experienced, so I decided to pull my journal together into a book.

Outlining what it is and what it does to the person. I was already in the war zone. I was living it. I was in the trenches and I had had enough. I was now in survival mode and in serious need of guidance. Tell me how to cope with the abuse I am experiencing right now! What I realized was, unless you've experienced the nightmare of family caregiving for someone with dementia, an outsider really has no idea of what the caregiver is experiencing.
