uniqu3lu909, what you are facing is probably very common.... a wife who is unable to take care of her husband will be resentful to another woman who is doing the care. And she will think she knows what is best even though she never had faced such an elderly decline of her own husband.

And yes, she will gossip to others trying to gain sympathy so that others will feel sorry for her, and not view her her as a none caring wife.

Do your job to the best of your ability and tune out the wife. Bet the husband is secretly enjoying having two women care for him :P

Is this a paid position? Does the wife has dementia? Who is your employer? Answer those questions and you'll have an answer to your bigger question, which is, should you stay or leave.
