Waving at you from not so sunny Devon!Hello all you lovely carers!! None of this is easy. Seems as we manage one level - they go to the next level!
But I had a night off and feel better for it. My niece is keen to help and is studying nursing so I pay her to help care - works for both of us. But it can’t be often as she has three children and they are passed on to my sister, their grandmother !!
I suspect if my husband go could to respite care at a care home - I would jump at it !
But he is cognitive enough to get very down if I’m not home with him each night.
I think @Grahamstown we all have different versions - but none are good !! Just have to count my blessings - my husband , like @Duggies-girl ’s dad - is polite and is often clever with words (when he is close to a real subject).
When he doesn’t keep food down I get very stressed.
Blessings to you all and thanks for sharing. PS @DesperateofDevon - I love Devon and Exeter- but travel days are limited now.
