Dementia creates ambiguous loss. Your loved one is here, but not here. It’s confusing. There’s no timetable, so no sense of closure.
As you care for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s, it’s important to care for yourself. We want you to know it’s okay to grieve along the journey and we encourage you to allow yourself to rest, accepting that some things are not fixable.
