My wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's four and a half years ago. She is still at home with me and I have a lady come in three times a week to give me some time to myself but with the onset of Corona Virus I don't get very much me time. The lady that comes in is very helpful and does all our shopping which I appreciate very much. My problem with this situation is that I have a chest problem and also have Asthma and Ifeel so very vulnerable and I don't know what to do about the situation. I cant contemplate her not coming in as I have trouble with my wife as she drives me mad especially after tea but I still feel so vulnerable. Is anyone in the same situation and can anyone advise.

Personally, I think you need to keep her coming at the moment but could you be in another room or the garden while she is with your wife?
