My husband is in late stage 6 with Alzheimer's. I have been good for 9 years taking care of him, but suddenly I feel like I have nothing to look forward to. I feel like there is a black cloud over my head and I can't shake the feeling. I remembered that my daughter invited me to go to the shore with them when they go in August. I would really love to go with them but can't take my husband. He is way too much work to enjoy a vacation. It would do no good at all just to get away with him. I am exhausted and need at least a week of respite care. How do I go about finding someone who is qualified to take care of him who would come to my home for the week. I think he would be more comfortable here than somewhere else. At least he is familiar with his home and feels safe here.
Does the VA take a person for a week of respite care?
