What do you do when your love needs care round the clock but you need time for yourself and you feel guilty for doing so.

Hello and welcome.

Your other post talks about your mother coming home. Where is she now?

If your mother is in late stage then see if you can get either palliative care or hospice care for your mom. Look them up on the internet and find someone local that can help.

A good source for support would be the Alzheimer's Association at
You can find a local chapter. They also have a hotline you can call.

Don't feel guilty. Dealing with a loved one with Dementia is extremely difficult.

Hi peaceful one,

It is important for you to have some help. If finances are an issue, local religious and community organizations often provide volunteers who visit while you get out. Also, support group members have lots of resources to share.

Studies show that caregivers who get some help fare much better than those who don't - so think of that and let go of the guilt. When you get help, you actually are doing your loved one a favor by staying mentally and physically healthy.

You've been doing an incredibly difficult job - so take a break,
