Is there an activity or club you two could do together for bonding? More "girlfriends" than mil/dil? emoticon Is she able to go for walks or garden with you? Could you also take a class or do an activity away from home without her for "you" time?

Would she be interested/benefit from joining SparkPeople and tracking her food and fitness? Then you two could support each other in moving towards a healthy lifestyle.

Are there relationship issues that need to be addressed? Sometimes local community centers offer free/low cost counseling for seniors and their caretakers.

Keep up the good work and don't be afraid to let your dh know when he needs to help out. I actually want my mil & fil to move in so I can prepare them healthy foods (be careful what you wish for, I know!).

Is it bad stress or good stress?
