Dear Caregiver

by chuck
(Duff)

I know how you feel and how frustrating it is to put your family's needs to the side. There are places that do help with the bathing and grooming and they come to your home for hospice care. I do have a nurse twice a week come and check on her health.


I feel that my husband and I need a date alone and a appointment to see each other, our quality time is wrapped up doing things around moms elder care, putting her to bed, getting her dressed, doing her laundry etc... and I do spend a lot of time with her and not with him. I wonder if he resents me for that. He does help out and get her up on the weekends. He does care for her by getting her little things from the store and once in awhile he watches her while I go shop.

I hope you cope well with your current situation and praying to God always helps!
