After years of caregiving for my wife, I decided that for her safety and well being,it was time for her to be in assisted care. It is a very good facility and she has adjusted well. I however am having a difficult time adjusting. I know I need to get out, reconnect with old friends and start living my own life. I seem to be unable to do that, so now I am at home and very lonely. We have been together 24/7 for the last 15 years, have been married for 51 years, I have been full time caretaker for the past 5 years. Most days I go to see her and continue to help with her care. Anyone care to make suggestions. How were you able to adjust to being alone?
