Watching one’s spouse or other loved one suffer from dementia may be one of the toughest things ever. In this episode, we listen to how a social worker and home health aides recommended that their client's husband move out of their primary home in order to ease the anxiety and anger of his afflicted wife. While this was emotionally difficult, he wanted to be supportive and make sure his wife received the best possible care.
So, he moved out and into their country home. Now he misses the love of his life and wonders if he’s made a big mistake.
Listen in to an alternative solution that was created and offered to him to make things better for everyone.
Such a move might work for someone you love, too.
