Lyrics:
Tim Mahoney
03:52:08
I have a place where dreams are born,And time is never planned.It's not on any chart,You must find it with your heart.Never Never Land.It might be miles beyond the moon,Or right there where you stand.Just keep an open mind,And then suddenly you'll findNever Never Land.You'll have a treasure if you stay there,More precious far than gold.For once you have found your way there,You can never, never grow old.And that's my home where dreams are born,And time is never planned.Just think of lovely things.And your heart will fly on wings,Forever in Never Never Land.You'll have a treasure if you stay there,More precious far than gold.For once you have found your way there,You can never, never grow old.And that's my home where dreams are born,And time is never planned.Just think of lovely things.And your heart will fly on wings,Forever in Never Never Land

The Patient doesn’t want the ‘caregiver’ to tell them what to do! Or be told what they have to do.

Financially it’s a burden.

From Joyce Cohen I was asked what are you doing to releave your stress I said Cry and Scream when needed
Cindie Wilding
05:07:57
Wow, the difference between intuitive and instrumental griever was huge for me. I'm intuitive 100%. And see myself having to do now. And the person I would talk to about everything in life - my husband, is not a resource when it comes to this.

The ALZ support groups are wonderful. My husband was diagnosed with dementia last year at 62 and the respective groups are helpful to both of us.

In Maine,Spectrum Generations is the Area Agency on Aging that has caregiver support groupd and Savvy Caregiiving classes and a respite program to help with costs.

Amy Adams
05:15:00
Do people go to support groups after they lose their loved one or are there distinct support programs for that?
Barb
05:15:44
For me after my partner's death finding something I could feel passion about was so important. During the progression of her illness it was hard to care for myself because the responsibilities never went away.
Stacy Chavis
05:16:01
Hi Amy, people attend both. Below are links to the groups Deanna was referring to and you can access others through our Helpline at 1-800-272-3900 https://www.hopehealthco.org/services/support-groups/caregiver-support-group/https://www.hopehealthco.org/services/hospice-care/grief-support/find-a-grief-support-group/

05:16:08
How about a group about caring for the caregiver??
Rose Riley
05:16:08
How do you find “respite”.
Jonathan Nickerson
05:17:15
I like heavy metal and play it real loud. It helps!
Charles
05:17:22
We have two individuals in our support group that have lost loved ones but they continue to participate.
Stacy Chavis
05:17:32
Rose, Different areas have different programs related to respite. Please call our Helpline at 1-800-272-3900 for information and referral to these resources.
Barb
05:17:47
Amy, I went to a bereavement group reluctantly but it was such as blessing. I also know people who continued in their support group but for me I felt like I would be seen as the "grim reaper".
Kim L
05:19:11
Amy sometimes hospice, hospitals or VNA/s have support groups for grieving after loved one has died,
Kiyomi Yatsuhashi
05:19:12
Thank you very much for this talk. I was just talking about this with my family and minister. Your detailed presentation is helping me realize what I’m going through emotionally. It’s made me stop and feel all the emotions that are coming up right now.
Bonnie
05:19:49
I felt like my sisters weren't interested in what I was going through. But they didn't know how to handle the situation with our dad.
Betsy
05:20:27
There are people in my support group that still come, and they are very helpful to others because they have completed the entire journey.
Rose Riley
05:20:47
I wish I had a better idea of what’s coming and how to assess when it’s just normal and when it’s a warning sign.

Dealing with several ambiguities; recent ex-partner still primary relationship; no diagnosis due to denial--is it early stage Alz or severe MCI?

Preparing for the downward trend and then having it totally stop, for a long time before resuming, is what kills me.

Donna Taylor-yes, I felt sister would be grateful for my caregiving but there was resentment which I think now was partly her feelings of guilt that she couldn’t do more. I included her in caregiving and decisions- when I could

It isn't just dementia that causes caregiver ambiguous grief. I was a caregiver for my mom when she was age 91 to almost 100. She went from independent living, go assisted living, to a nursing home. I grieved for every decline she went through, including dementia in her last few years. By the time she passed away, I felt only relief--I thought! She was extremely dependent on me, and it was a long haul.My husband was diagnosed with dementia months after my mother died, and later with Alzheimer's. Now I feel so drained sometimes, going through the caregiver grief and physical exhaustion again.

To rephrase, we were on a rapid downward spiral, preparing for the end, and then he stabilized. Months later the cycle repeats. The start, stop grieving points are so hard
