I'm new to this (actually 7 months care giving-including 7+ weeks in hospital/SNF for my wife). I'm 70. wife is 76. 100% bed bound due to health issues, severe Hypoglycemia, Malnutrition, TIA, mild heart attack, complications caused by 'errors' in hospital, and PTSD.
What a voyage this has been so far. I was doing ok for 5 months at home until malnutrition caused 911 call and emergency room because of stroke like symptoms. turn out malnutrition can mimic stroke. Home again after 7 days but I am wiped from continuing saga of Caregiving.
Thanks for listening.
