I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
Help with adult children
Tcon, do you know if her community has a hospice service, as our local Hospice House has grief support groups that i myself hav gone to. It helped me SO MUCH when i was dealing with my dads passing. Depending on how much energy you hav, you could lookup to see if her community has Hospice, and then call them to get info for her. Dependimg on ur situation and hers, you could either giv her the info OR suggest she call them about gettimg her own info.
Im glad shes on meds and had some counsellimg. U didnt say how long she was in therapy, but she mite need some more. Everyone grieves in their own way and time. There are several stages of grief that you and your kids are going thru, and each one of you are going to go thru each stage at different times and different ways.
I dont know if this has helped you in anyway, but know that u are in my prayers tonite! God Bless...
P.S. the grief support groups thru hospice are FREE and i think.only last 6 wks.
Good luck with ur Lewy Bodies. After ALL the rsearch ive done on Lewy Bodies, i thimk i may hav a MIXED diagnosis of Vascular demwntia and Lewy Bodies. Going to ask my neurologist at next appt.
Welcome Tconn. I am sorry to learn of your wife's passing. Vik's idea about grief counseling for your daughter sounds good. Does she want you to move in with her, or vice versa?
Welcome to our world Tconn. I'm so glad you found our site. You have received good advice in regards to your daughter.
What are your own plan for when you need help? Do you have funds for Assisted Living? Having daughter change her life to move and take care of you or have you move in with her can be problematic. Lewy Body has many different aspects.
