My wife have Parkinson and have now started having dementia also. This is taking a big toll on me and I feel that my dressing help with my mental state. It’s hard to look in to the eyes of the one you been with and loved for over 30 years and hear her say things like “go away”, “leave me a lone”, “don’t touch me”, “I know you don’t love me”.
When she isn’t that bad she many times say she like Kelly better than my male version (not that I know that anything changes besides the clothes) so it’s a win win for both of us when Kelly is out.
Recently this has become worse to the level that I had to take her to the hospital to get some assessment on what’s going on. It resulting in that we will now get a pile of different home care services, people coming home to help out with different things.
I was first thinking of putting away all the Kelly stuff but decided on that I will not only skip that, I will let Kelly out even when they are coming by. I already done it to some people who came by to do some physio therapy so it won’t be the first one. whoever comes next. I feel it will be a relief to let Kelly out more and we see how it goes over the next few weeks/months with this. I do hope I can keep her home since no matter what I still love her.
