Everyday we tried to make the best out of it. Slowly watching my grandfather change into someone I don’t recognize and watching dementia just eat away at someone’s mental physical emotional self is heartbreaking. No words can describe the things we went through and endured the past 3 years. But it’s “o.k” when you have someone who lives and cares for you right beside you. Except I wasn’t able to be at his bedside when he went to the emergency because of COVID. He didn’t know anyone was still here waiting for him to wake up and call and eventually come home. The doctors told us he was responding to treatment and would wake her and there. Only for the following night they called to inform me that my Grandfather passed away a little while ago. I’m the morning a different doctor called saying it looked like her passed in his sleep—- yes it brought a little bit of comfort to think he went peacefully, but how can you truly prove that ? You can’t. You can’t bring back the dead. I gave up a lot at the beginning of everything. I had just turned 18 & chose to step in and be there for him since NO other family member would do it— not one single member of the family. He was there for EVERYONE and not 1 could be there for him. I truly Did all I could to help him live a longer life , ranging between many different things like daily aid, home cooked meals, anything that he needed , wanted etc. But regardless of anything... dementia still runs its brutal course on a person and now the Lord has called him home. 🙏🏼
Since I was his main and only caregiver besides some help from stepbrother, this is very tragic and devastating. I haven’t been able to get a job since he required 24/7 care. I dropped out of highschool at 14 to care for my mom that was diagnosed with cancer and went through chemo and radiation then eventually surgery and having to administer iv fluids for her. Then grandpas accident and the last few years i got to spend with him. I was told time & time again I was unable to get paid for caring for him as his insurance didn’t cover those things. Now with no source of income, no vehicle. Trying to make sure and pray that I don’t lose the home I grew up in with him. Im hoping there’s still some people with kindness left in their hearts that are willing to help me out.. even a small amount is very , very appreciated.
