This has got to be one of the worst ways to to go ,not only for the parent but also all of the loved ones around them. My father is in what I would guess stage 5 of the disease. We tried to take care of him here at my home but that only lasted a week and we realized he needed more help than we could provide. We placed him in a nursing home with a memory care unit. It’s still not anywhere near over for dad ,or my 2 brothers, Jackie and myself. I have always been close to my father , seeing him like this is just heartbreaking. The past month has been a rough one for Jackie and myself. I apologize for any lapse in service over the past 30 or so days . If you have gone through this you understand ,if you haven’t pray you never have to .
