My father is in the last stage of frontemporal dementia. He just lays there, he can't talk very often and seems to be out of it most of the time. But I had a dream, he came to me and told me to please let him know, what is going on. He told me I don't talk to HIM anymore. He said, I talk over him, but not to him. I never realized. I was talking to the caregiver and not really to him. So now I talk to him, I tell him everything. We have a lot of problems with an abusive stepmother, lots of attorneys etc. Of course, he wanted to know, I just never thought he would understand or maybe even not hear me. You just never know. In my dream, he said he can't tell me, but his soul needs to know. I just wondered if anyone else had this happen? He hasn't talked where we could understand him in 2 months, and thursday, he said, let's get in the car and go somewhere, anywhere. He always loved to go.I'm the one that always took him. I just wish I could take him and go. Sorry, I got off track.
