Any advice for a new caregiver?
My name is Stephanie and I have recently taken on the role of sole-caretaker for my husband's 91-year-old grandmother. She has diabetes and dementia, but is pretty sharp other than that. We moved into her home a couple weeks ago just so we can be right there with her. I'm 30 years old and just married my husband last year, so I feel like we're putting our own life on hold a bit. Any advice for me? Do I sound like a selfish brat? I'm quitting my full-time job so I can provide her with 24/7 care and I really feel like this will take a huge toll on my personal life and even my marriage. Any advice is appreciated!
