Knowing there are many people in my same situation as caregivers, I would like to offer my sentiments. There is a plethora of information out there about caregivers and how important it is to get adequate sleep, exercise, eating right, chilling out, etc etc etc. in order to maintain our health as caregivers. They also Talk about the importance of getting away. That's all well and good and I appreciate the suggestions and advice. However, nobody offers any help in providing onhand caregiver assistance so one can get away for a day or two. Health insurance does not include caregiver assistance and Hospice's respite care involves the patient being sent to one of their sponsored facilities. Well in my situation sending my wife to a facility is out of the question for a variety of reasons which I won't go into today. I have used home care services in the past but the cost is prohibitive except for a rare one maybe two days. My question I guess is how in the world can a caregiver get away for a few days? Any comments\suggestions,. will be appreciated.
