    Anyone caring for somebody for a number of years?

    My wife as been looking after her mum for almost 5 years now, was wondering if anybody else was in a similar situation?

    Thanks!

    hello again, Scott

    I've been caring for my husband for four years now. so we are fairly similar in years we've spent caring for someone.

    Hello Again

    Do you have lots of outside help from agencies or friends? Does your husband ever go to a hospice? Our Elleanor nurse sugges that she goes for the odd day each week but she keeps saying no. We thought it may be a good way for her to get out of the house (as she is no longer as the use of her legs) and it is very hard to get her in and out of a car. Especially for my wife as she also has our young son to look after.
