Care Planning 1,2,3
I don't know where to start... I am in over my head... It's one crisis after another...I wish I had done this sooner...
You care for a loved one with dementia. No one taught you how. You do your best, but it's extremely difficult. Naturally, you can feel overwhelmed, knowing that the next crisis is just around the corner: "He can't live on his own anymore." "Mom can't stay in our home." "My husband can't remember my name."
It's very much like walking into a dark room, knowing that you're going to bump into something. What if someone could turn on the light and guide you through all of the obstacles? That someone is a Dementia Care Coordinator.
