How much support are you currently getting with your own rehabilitation? If you still need post-operative support, you need to add that you're a carer. Tell those who are looking after you about your extra duties as a carer for your husband. If nobody knows, no one will help.I had a hip operation recently and my daughter has been looking after me and leaves tomorrow and I don't know if I can cope with my husband who has dementia on my own.
Any dementia-friendly cafe's or social groups near you, where you could both go? Does hubby like going out, or won't he go out? I know this is something many of us have to deal with. My husband would never go anywhere.As we live in a Retirement Village I do have some help. It is more the emotional side I am worried about because I don't have my usual energy levels. It will be lonely because my husband has no conversation and I am a people person and normally very social. I appreciate your replies.
Hi KevinHi Lucy
Come on here and be cyber social with us. On another forum I'm in (to do with the narrowboat we own) someone is having a hip replacement and was asking about recovery times and what it's like, any tips I can pass on?
I was looking at moving into a retirement village but it's a bit difficult working our all the for's and against's the main one is the management charges which are putting me off a bit so still only thinking about it.
