  •  End of life issues are difficult ... (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Cali Scribe, Persiflage

    especially when you are dealing with the "crazy" that results from dementia ... but you will regret it for the rest of your life if you don't do what you can. I've been on both sides of that struggle. The extreme guilt that comes from "ignoring" the problem ... and the satisfaction that comes from jumping in and being a consistent help.

    You can do this. You must do this. Imagine yourself in you mother in laws position. Imagine your husband there.

    Just be available. Make regular visits. Bring something special and memorable every time you visit.

    It will help your husband, your mom in law ... and you.
