My mom is in hospice care at home. My father is very frail and has impaired vision, and at this point they really need someone there at night. I live over an hour away and my sisters live 2 and 15 minutes away. They want to take turns staying, and share other one guest room. Neither of them self isolate. One goes in to work, one cares for grade school age grandchildren.
I offered to come stay every night, and let them have the days to visit. But they both want to stay, because each wants to be there when mom dies. But I can’t accept the risk of sleeping in the same bed as someone from a different household. They both think I’m overreacting and the virus is no big deal. They are not good with mask wearing.
How are people dealing with shared caregiving during the pandemic? Is there a way to do this safely?
