He doesn’t want to leave our home and just wants for me to take care of him. Caring for him is slowly killing me. Any advice?
What a tough situation...you hopefully will get support to make the right decision for him and yourself...letting others help us is hard but I truly think sometimes it's the only right decision. If you become ill you won't be able to advocate for him and be a loving wife. You don't have to be the caretaker to prove you love him...getting him the best help does not make you a bad person. Hold yourself in gentle loving kindness as you make these difficult choices. Take care.
yes it is so hard i hated putting my mom in a facility. but she was needing 24 hour care, like a Schizophrenic you never knew which mood she was going to be in. Yes when i read about people taking care of their own parents at home i am jealous. I wish i could of retired but that was not a option. Mom and Dad saved their money and i am glad they did, she is in a beautiful facility and is well take of. ☺️
I am also struggling with the decision to put my husband in memory care. My doctor and therapist have recommended it. I think I have finally decided it is time. My husband pretty much paces all day if he is home. The disease seems to be progressing more rapidly. I can now see it is really starting to effect my health.
