Caring for a family member is hard but caring for your spouse or partner is the hardest thing I have ever done.
The lack of a future is the hardest next the isolation,,the contant appointments..and coping but we dont want them to stop there life to care for us. We both want them to visit regularly though.
I was the main carer for my parent even though there was 3 bothers and a sister. I dont want our care to land on them as I know that a resented my parents at time. I was bringing up my family and running around for them too. Shopping, ensuring they had access to washing facilities, sometimes preparing food and the endless runs to hospitals....dont want that for my children.
