I have received several wonderful messages of support. However, whenever I go to the support group it seems that most of the posts are about parents. I seem to think that the dynamics of having a parent versus a spouse must be a little different. If there is anyone out there who is dealing with a spouse with dementia I would be interested in hearing from them and how they are coping with the changing role they are now playing. I am 65 and my husband is 74. No children and siblings are many states away. I get 20 hours of support from long term care insurance but am on a very limited financial state so cannot pay for any more. I try to keep up a positive face for everyone, but there are times that I resent having to put him first 24/7. I try not to lose my temper with him when he does things I have asked him not to - never yelling although I would like to! I know he doesn't remember it but I still feel quilty. Any insights would be helpful!
