Sounds like a very discouraging situation, Lea. Surely you have to discuss this in detail with members of whatever team are supposed to be looking after him --- what options there may be for admission, revised, medication, and so on ?
Its not unconditional ove that has gone wrong --- but it can, I know, become so wearying. This is why intelligent shrinks and institutions arrange for periodic admissions to hospital for what we call "respite" admissions, to enable the primary caregiver, you, to rest and care for yourself for a while, and get refreshed for continuing with the tasks you are so used to. Talk with Lifeline. Check with SANCA about facilites. You need counselling support, with or without medication. I wish doctors would realize that medicines, though they can be very valuable, are NEVER enough to deal with such problems without counselling and basic human support. Do, indeed, seek proper care for yourself, too. Don't give up.
From my own experience, I know that however hard to work to provide that essential care, and however wearying it gets, when a stage is reached when you are no longer needed, it becomes a source of further grief, and you never feel you had done enough
