Dear Ellie, I am sorry that you miss having your husband at home with you. Up until a few days ago I said that I would never place my husband in a care facility but I don't know what else I could do if he gets any harder to take care of. It is such a heart-rending place to be. Can you talk to the doctor and tell him/her that you don't want your husband overly medicated? God bless you for your concern for others. I will pray for you and your husband. Please pray for us.
I live in Laconia, NH. I am working live in home care at this time. I will pray that you find a wonderful person to help you with your husband. I'm off to CT now & will return home Monday eve. My heart is with you. Peace & love.
No, I am not a widow. My husband has alzheimer's and I take care of him when I am not at work. While I am gone he is in an adult daycare setting or at my daughter's home because I frequently work late. I see that your husband is receiving care somewhere. How do you feel about that? Friends tell me that I will be faced with such a decision someday and I tell them that God will work it out. I frequently feel so alone. I don't have any friends that have had anything similar happen to them. What about you?
