@debbraw Very valid points you brought up. Boy, this gal is probably so torn and weary, perhaps she is hoping what she may be seeing in either her husband or dad are not as severe as they may be. @suerc If there are any family members [siblings/grandchildren/niece/nephew] hopefully she will approach them for their help. Most towns have a respite care system; in a town I lived in there was an order of nuns who were nurses, and did respite care regardless of faith. Also there are caregivers' groups. I wager she will welcome that coffee and a chance to talk.
