    May you have a blessed and refreshing time away, Sandra! No one knows how difficult 24/7 care giving is until you experience it yourself. I pray that God blesses you with new strength for your journey!

    As a caregiver, time away is essential. The patient is no longer who they once were. It is hard on both parties. Both people will go through major adjustments. You are in my prayers, Sandra.

    My heart goes out to you Sandra!

    My dear mother had Alzheimer's Disease for about 5 years (and probably more) before she died. My DH and I cared for her in our home until she died on Christmas Day in 2001. It was a privilege to be able to care for her...she became like an infant in her need for care, 24x7...and were it not for my DH retiring from his job early, and for the care givers we were able to have now and then in our home, we never could have done that. Of course I cared for her in her own home off and on before she became really afflicted with the disease, and a brother helped as well at that time, by checking on her and getting her some groceries, etc.

    You surely do NEED some time away from the usual, during this time, and once my DH and I had a whole month off while mom was in a respite care facility.

    However it was the greatest blessing of my life and his, to care for her in our home to the end. This is usually impossible to do, but I was a nurse, and my DH helped me to get through, plus those care givers and of course the Lord. I will say a prayer for you, and that you will have a good 2 weeks away from the stress, and will return refreshed and able to carry on with renewed strength. Blessings, Joanie emoticon
