I decided I needed to be closer to my daughter and her family. I also decided to stop being a caregiver and just be a daughter to my parents.

I thought about it a long time, whether to tell my mom she had dementia. But she kept saying how “stupid” she was and I wanted to let her know it was a disease that she had no control over. I started my telling she had a severe memory problem, she came back with, “well, you forget things too.” I finally mentioned dementia, but she still keeps calling herself “stupid” and get mad when she is corrected about a memory or inability to do a task
