Does anyone on voat have experience caring for an aging parent who is beginning to show signs of Alzheimer's or dementia? He is starting to forget events, names, and thinks things are true which aren't. For example, every day he demands to be taken to the airport to be flown to Hawaii to see his old friends (he grew up there, it's very special to him). He thinks the plane is waiting for him and becomes very upset when no one takes him.
Anyone have any advise? How to care for him? It's painful to watch but I want to be there for him whenever I can. Anything helps. Thank you.
