My wife (PWD) has been in the hospital for five weeks for an assessment now, and I feel totally lonely. I go and visit every other day but return home to an empty house with nothing to do. The assessment has been completed but nothing will be done until we have a "best interest" meeting. In the meantime, TV seems totally boring and cooking for one it too much effort. I dread to think about how I will cope when a nursing home becomes the only solution.
