Thanks, Patrick. Your own blog tells the story well. I'm glad I could add some information that could help. Keep up the good work.

Wow! Did this strike home. Approaching my 22nd year of MS spouse caregiving, the last 7 years with my wife in a care facility, this is something I dread. Like the 'dedicated' caregiver referenced I do not think I'm all that unusual living nearby and including my wife in outings and preparing, transferring her and tucking her into bed myself 4 - 5 nights a week. Time, companionship and experience is tough to replace.

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick
