My husband has vascular dementia and has had a stroke. He was recently hospitalized with pneumonia and had developed sepsis. He had hypoxic respiratory arrest and had to be intubated. As a result, his dementia is worse. I do still work; I have an extra office where he has a recliner and he plays "freecell" and naps during the day and I take him to lunch and am accessible to him (family owned business). However, when I'm home, I just can't get myself to do anything; I just feel so alone! We have no family near by; my son and his family moved to Arizona last year for his job. My brother (co-owner of the business) lives at least 100 miles away (we have more than one store). We only moved into this community 8 years ago before the stroke and have no connection to the community. It is a small town with no support system for adult care givers. If I stop working (I'm 67), I feel like I will completely fall into a depression. I know I'm getting to the place I'm not coping well, I just don't know what to do any more. My husband can still feed himself, dress himself (with a little help), brush his teeth, shave, go to the bathroom. He just forgets where things are...like tooth brush...refrigerator...clothing...etc. He forgets he had cataract surgery, so he insists on wearing glasses (I bought him clear safety glasses) and he loses them. I just can't get my energy back. He isn't hard to care for, I just feel so alone even though I visit with people at work. What do I do?
