For most of us - caregiving is a learning experience. Most of us had no idea what we were getting into or how to do it - but we learned and continue to learn. Love, empathy, and a good heart are what's needed - along with good health (which will decline) and a strong back (which won't stay strong). No when to say WHEN. Be assured of your worth!!! They don't call caregiving a thankless job for nothing ;0)

What an insult
What she probably meant was "training".
Respect is a cornerstone of nursing.
This girl still has a lot to learn, that is if she is capable.
Your FIL is alive and well thanks to our devotion. You simply learnt the hard way, on the job.
