sounds like the little guy's maybe feeling insecure in his "old age." i agree with Marie. i'd give him all the love he can stand. you won't regret it later i swear. of course you need your breaks for personal space, though, so take them! you're being a caregiver just like any other caregiver for a family member, and it's a 24 hour job. maybe you can take your breaks the moment he falls asleep. then kiss him and whisper that you'll be back and go take your break. is there anyone else who could keep him company while you're out? that would certainly help if it's at all possible. that's one thing human caregivers use hospice agencies for. anyway, if you can find him other human company while you take your break, then you won't have to feel badly leaving him for a little while.
