I think we sometimes get mixed up thinking that if we send our loved one to a facility, we are bailing out on them. I think there are two separate conditions:
(1) This person is an inconvenience to me
(2) I am not capable of giving my loved one the care they need.
I do not want to bail out because my loved one is an inconvenience to me but I do need to know where is the line that I need to accept the fact that I am not capable of doing it anymore and need to let others take care of them. Where can I find that information?
My life experience has been "you just hang in there and do the best you can and keep on hanging on."
Now I am thinking that may not be the best plan of action. I know God will provide a way, but that does not necessarily mean that "I" am that way. He uses people, but I am not necessarily the only person He can use.
So if anyone can add some light to how I can tell if and when I need to change caregiving.
Thank you all so much for your loving care you give and being willing to share with the rest of us.
