Sep 4, 2018 · Caring for someone with dementia / Alzheimer's in Caregivers: Dementia

My mom has Dementia diagnosed 10 years ago. On April 22, 17 took mom to the ER for a stroke. While in ICU on April 23 she had her second stroke.
My dad had his own medical problems main one being CHF. He fell on April 24th and fractured his back. He passed away May 15th.
Mom was in rehab when she got sick and was admitted into the hospital. They told us to say our good byes. I brought mom home on June 1st. In the first 3 months if being home she had rallied twice. In December hospice had to discharge her.
So mom has mixed dementia and strokes.

I moved in with my mom. I am her only daughter. I have 2 brothers who live out of state.
I have my daughter come in every Sunday for 8 hours so I can go see and be with my husband. He is taking care of our house and pets.
I also have a volunteer come in for 4 hours on Tuesday's so I can go shopping.
