This Week's Carenote - 10/04/11

Coping with my dear husband who is 84, 10 years older than I.  He has severe polyneuropathy and possibly Parkinson's. I thank God he has his mind. We need a caregiver because I cannot hold him if he falls. He needs to be held onto by a gait belt whenever he moves. My biggest fear is financial; just seeing to his personal needs (he is also post-op bypass) demands four hours of time at least. I am fighting depression, resentment, anger, guilt, and grief to see him like this. These are the golden years?
