This is so similar to what I experienced with my husband and was directed by the social worker at VA Clinic to take him to Senior Behavioral Unit at the local hospital for evaluation. I wondered how we were going to get him to go, but he had complained of some chest pain a short while ago so I said the Dr. wanted him to go have it checked out. Worked and he willingly went. I was able to take to the Dr. before he went into exam room and fill him in on why we had brought him in. I was hardest thing I ever did to have him placed in a Care center, but the best for everyone. I couldn't care for him at home any longer.

I know I am facing that down the road…even with caregiver assistance it is often overwhelming. We caregivers need to take care of us too…it’s a hard decision for us to make but the best for all .
