I am new to this board, but not a new member. I am a live in caregiver to a patient that has dementia and alzheimer's. I work 24/7 6 days a week. And I can use some support to keep sane. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to talk with me. Thanks.

You are more then welcome to come on here and talk with us anytime :) Many of us are or were caregivers also so I am pretty sure we all know where you are coming from. Taking care of someone with dementia or AZ is hard and it takes patience, love and understanding. What you are doing is comendable. Not that many people would be willing to do what you do.
