Lots of professionals have been coming and going here for the past few weeks. This will soon end since Medicare won't continue paying for 'maintenance' care.
So, soon I will be back to having an aide for a little over an hour 6 times a week and Saturday evening.
The nurse who visits has been saying I need more help continuing after this. I heartily agree! She suggested finding aides who work independently-not with an agency. She is right. I hope I can find such a person or people.
Also she told my husband he needs to go to a nearby adult day program for at least one day a week. He agreed to do this.
After 7 years of caring for him (6 years of that while working full time), I am again approaching burn out. I am having a hard time making simple decisions and sleeping too much in the daytime. Not good signs.
