"Caregiving is about your survival first.
Then we keep our loved one safe, calm,
comfortable, and happy - in that order." -Vic
The top 5 things a caregiver needs to understand are:
We cannot fix dementia
We cannot control dementia
We are not at the expense of dementia or caregiving
Every caregiver's path is unlike anyone else's. Do not compare
Every patient's path with dementia is different. Symptoms are similar, but not exactly the same. Do not compare. -Vic

Irritable, impatient, and angry
Cynical and detached
Depressed, sleep-deprived, moody
Feel they have accomplished very little or nothing
