Who will care for us as we age?

My husband has mixed dementia. After reading Mike and Me, I would like it if he could live out his life here in the home he loves. We have 20 acres and he loves being out in the country. I just brought him home from the hospital 2 days ago and he was so confused and cranky in the hospital. Granted just being sick can cause that and he was also off his meds. I’m thinking that when he’s gone I’ll probably live with one of my daughters. My Grandma lived with my Mom and my mom lived with me. They both lived to just a few weeks less than 100. 👍

Hi @cmael Glad you were able to bring your husband home! That is nice and it sounds like you have quite a lovely spot with lots of land!

My MIL had dementia and I remember that things were always extra difficult, she usually declined a bit, and was often crabby after any change in her surroundings, etc. Any type of confusion or change made her more confused.

My wife wanted home hospice for her care and we were lucky that we could do that for her, but I know many where their patient's situation made that impossible.

Wishing you the best and hoping the sun shines wherever you are today!

Strength, courage, and peace!
