I enjoyed going for walks, caring for and talking with an amazing man.
Pros: i was able to care for him out of my home.
Cons: there was no respite care, my job was 24/7.
Helping with personal hygiene and getting ready for the day, fixing meals and providing snacks, going for walks and providing other daily activities.
I was guardian/caregiver for my ex father-in-law, who has dementia, I worked out of my home and had no other help.
