Caring for a spouse with dementia

My husband of 47 years has stroke related dementia . As the weeks go by he seems to be more and more angry that he is not in contol of his life. He has points in time that he is lucid and happy and he loves me and talks to me about how much he knows i have to do for him but he can turn on a dime and he calls me names breaks things and yells threats at me. I tell myself its not him but his dementia, however I cant seem to stop crying and feeling anger toward him. If anyone has advice to help me get through this p[lease share with me your thoughts . I know if I wait 2 to 3 hours he will forget all that he did but how do i forget and forgive ?
