Can anyone advise me. My wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's nearly 4 years ago. She has deteriorated over that time and now I have been advised that I should consider putting her in respite for at least a week but it would probably be better for her and myself to try two weeks. My problem is that ZI don't know how I will be able to take her to the care home and leave her there, I am really upset at the thought of her going into respite and I have no idea what putting her into respite entails, clothes ECT. So can anyone advise how to cope with the problem.
