It's no wonder you and your husband can't keep this up. You may have to look at assisted living for them.. Probably they could share a room. Depending on their needs, they may need a nursing home. If you can't find in-home help, you'll need to do something. I'm sure they don't want to move, but if their minds are sharp, they may be able to understand the need and also, once adjusted, make friends and have peer interaction. Good luck. You want to live to be old, too! There is a limit.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
