I started care giving for my grandmother about a year and a half ago when her moderate dementia proved to be too much for her to handle on her own. Soon I found that she was uncharacteristically energetic for her age and condition and the advice on how to care for a family member with dementia never quite fit either. Also, as draining as the relationship is, she is quite funny, which is why I wish to present to you the humorous side of the disease (if you don’t take time to laugh, you’ll spend every minute crying) and offer my advice based on my own experiences.
