I realize everyone's situation is unique, but I'd like to ask for suggestions on how to care for a loved one who often needs redirection and attention while also trying to manage dinner/evening/bedtime routines.
How can I best manage our time so I can prepare dinner and then have time to do dishes, and maybe some time to enjoy family life afterwards? Currently, I often start dinner prep anytime from 4:30-5:30pm and we eat together after my husband gets home from work around 6:30. The kitchen is cleaned up ~7:30pm. (Mom goes to bed around 9:30pm and rises around 7am.)
Also, my mom's attention span and cognitive abilities are like a 2 yr. old., and she needs constant supervision in order to complete any task. Thank you!
