Since Brian had a massive stroke in January of 2016 I have been his sole care giver.
I am finding it difficult to keep this pace without a break for myself. He has been home since May 13, 2016 and I
have been *it* since that day.
He does get to Adult Day Connection 4 days each week, but that is for he sole purpose of me going into the office to work.
We have taken some vacations, and they have been wonderful.
Respite care is different. When we vacation, the work goes with me. In fact, there is more work being away from
home. Most of us can take time away from our responsibilities, we certainly need that break. This is why
employers offer vacation time. They understand the value of taking a break from “work”. Husbands and wives
have stronger relationships when they can take some time apart.
Therefore, I am planning a getaway for myself. Brian will stay home with a caregiver while I travel.
I have been asked, by numerous friends, to set up this account to facilitate their help with the expenses.
Please do not feel obligated. Pray as you consider contributing.
God loves you and so do I.
