REKANN1- It sounds like you are doing your research. One thing we were told early on is to take care of yourself. You aren't any good to others if your health fails. (Like they tell you in the airplane to put the oxygen on yourself before helping others)

I would look into respite options to have on hand. Her alszheimers may get worse so you want to be prepared to be able to take some time for yourself.
