Default grandad has vascula dementia

Hey guys just wanted to post, we have had an awful year so far but just in the last few months my grandad is now in a care home, lost his home and has vascular dementia not sure if its spelt that way

i go to see him at the care home and he seems quite happy and other days hes off with the fairy's, me and my grandad we have been close for years i had lived with him since i was 8yr old up until i was about 26year old when i moved out with my partner.

but i have to admit it feels more likes he has passed away more than he has dementia and its horrible i go and see him and it no the granadad i remember i always almost break down in tears im not used to this kinda thing i have never been around it before so its new

the family don't wanna help i had to clear his house out my nan had to get a new place and each and every day its hard i try and keep smiling as im a full time carer for my partner but its so hard not to think about it.

i honestly just wanna turn around to him and tell him "come on lets go home" but that will never be the same never again and i honestly hate change, my granadad is someone i have always looked up to and stuff and he was 6 ft built like a house and always strong and i have to be honest i never expected him to end up this way.

im scared of him dying i don't ever want him to because i love him so much but man its so hard im not sure i can find the right words and cant find someone to talk to so here is the only outlet, each day i try and smile and make others happy because you never know when life will change.

thanks for listening

I'm sorry to hear what you're going through. I hope time heals the wounds.
