"My wife, Nancy, and I have been caring for my sister, Mona, since 1995. Mona is 73-years-old and her physical and mental capacities are deteriorating. She is increasingly unsteady on her feet, has difficulty understanding directions and is hard of hearing."
"I am 78-years-old and Nancy is 72. Our stress level is increasing because of the responsibility of taking care of Mona. Both Nancy and I are in therapy for stress and depression."
“We prepare her meals, wash her clothes, manage her medications and coordinate all her medical appointments. One of the most frustrating requirements is finding care so Nancy and I can go out for an evening. There is no opportunity for extended trips.”
