Mounting confusion

Every time something changes in the world of an elder that has been diagnosed with Dementia, their mind goes askew. The confusion mounts and they are really uncertain how to handle even the smallest of tasks. To some this can be frustrating, to me it is just downright sad because many of these people were mothers, fathers, employers, employees and good citizens. The changes create a being that is almost like a toddler, but one that cannot learn from experience.
At times the frustration seems so clear. Just doing a small task requires every bit of energy these elders can muster up. I feel frustrated in the fact that I just cannot seem to help them!
No matter what I say or what I do, there is something at work that I simply cannot detect and because of that wall that is put up, there is no reaching the individual locked inside. All I can do at times like these is to show them that With Age Comes Respect and that no amount of their physical or emotional issues will run me off. I am here to stay and be with them, love them and protect them from anything that comes in the way.
Many people would not enjoy this, but I do. I am here to stay!
