Dear Carol: I’ve been caring for my mom with dementia at home for five years. Social media is a blessing because online caregiving groups allow me to feel supported and even socialize without leaving Mom. The problem is that my family also uses social media, and they think they are helping by tagging me with all of these “every day is a good day” memes. I appreciate their good intentions, but dementia care is hard. Many days are a struggle so well-intentioned as they are, instead of helping me they just end up making me feel guilty for failing as a caregiver. How do I them know that these are just hurtful without making them mad? – LF
