The outbursts and episodes with dad are getting more frequent. He has had two fits this week. It is very hard to listen to mom describe them. Dad acts like a child throwing a temper tantrum, only it has so much more effect on you when it is an adult. We seem to be in some type of limbo, not quite serious enough to commit to more frequent care and yet we need to plan our next step.
I plan to visit with the supervisor of the home health that we currently use to see what the next level of care is. We really need someone with some experience with dementia so that they can offer mom more support and guidance. I would really love to hear how some of the rest of you are coping.
