I am a paraplegic since 1979 and a caregiver going on 8 years. My wife of 43 years had a stroke 12/31/2011. She is 80 years old and I am 76 years old. I find the years are taking the toll on me and doing everything to run a home, from cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, yardwork. I'm burnt out and my wife's daughters do not see my role relevant let alone see me doing everything in a wheelchair. My wife is strongly against going in a nursing home. I'm seeing her mind slowly but surely slipping away. All I get from her daughters are dejections and my sole responsibility for life to take care of their mother. Any piece of advice will be greatly appreciated.
