I have been pretty much house bound caring for my husband since Nov 2018. I was able to go on quilting retreats about once a month from the time I retired in 2012 until Nov 2018.
My family loves to go on all family vacations, and I have had to turn down the invites. This year they are planning to go to Rosemary Beach in Florida in Aug. So today, I started looking into Respite Care, thanks to my wonderful caregiver. On May 3, I am going to tour 2 facilities to see what they have to offer to take care of him for a week. Then, I'll have a better idea of what will be available when the time comes.
Which might be sooner than I had thought, because today he told me he knew my name. But he didn't think we were married. Even tho "Janie" ( the name of my grandmother's caregiver 35 years ago) said we were.
