Example text

She maintained that death was a good experience—but not if it took this long. 11 Grief doesn't go away; it just visits us less often. In my own case, I still grieve for my sister, who died fourteen years ago. When her children called me recently, desperately trying to make the right decision as their father lay at death's door, my immediate thought was What would my sister want me to say? I imagined a conversation with her, but her loss became painfully real for me once again. Is this abnormal grief?

Health care professionals might distance themselves from you because you're not the patient, just the caregiver. Making you feel even more confused and alone, none of the usual customs and rituals used to manage grief fit your kind of loss. You are on your own in a limbo that all too often goes unnoticed (or denied) by the larger community. Perhaps it is simply convenient for society to let unpaid family caregivers deal with dementia patients on their own. Or perhaps it's too troubling for others to see what they cannot fix.

And therein lies the hope for Jenny and all of you who live with dementia. When you are living with an illness or condition that has (as yet) no cure, hope lies in your perception and ability to change. This is creative adaptation. Seeing yourself and your situation in a new light can open doors. You begin to meet new people while also sticking by your loved one. You expand who you are beyond the role of caregiver by making new connections either in person or virtually on the Internet. Or you see ambiguity suddenly in more normal, even fun activities—playing cards, gaming, fishing—and you become less stressed by it.
