HOSPICE care, not respite.

Catgoodness, your husband sounds like he needs respite care, not a simple adult day care. He has many many health issues, several all by themselves which are too difficult for adult day care. He needs to be in hospice,.whether at home, or in a dedicated hospice facility. Not day care.

cattgoodness, sorry the adult day care is filled and you need to wait for an opening. Why would your husband die if he can't get in?

As for stress, you might want to be more positive when around your husband... sounds like he is mimicking your reactions.

cattgoodness, PACE Centers must meet State and Federal safety requirements, thus can only handle a certain number of people at one time. Waiting lists are not uncommon.

Have you considered a nursing home, for a temporary stay? I am all for you getting a break, because 1/3 of the time, the patient out lives the care taker.

You would need to check your State Medicaid office as every State has different programs, different rules and regulations. If possible, chances are it wouldn't be a Nurse but an Aide but only for a few hours.
