I've always been a traveler, even after my husband was diagnosed with vascular dementia, then Parkinsons. I would travel 2 or 3 times a year, leaving him with a good caregiver. I stopped traveling about a year ago. Six months ago he went under the care of hospice at home. Since then, he seems to be doing quite well under the circumstances. He gets up and walks around, wanders actually, and has a voracious appetite although he is losing weight. It occurred to me this could go on for years and I will have spent my final years sitting around the house. I'm getting antsy to get away for awhile but since he is under hospice care I worry about something happening while I am gone. Hospice can't help. They say there's no way of predicting these things. Has anyone else experienced. Ideas? Thoughts?
