Taking care of aging parents is hard. I think one of the best ways you can get time for yourself is to hire an in-home caregiver - even part time. I was hesitant to do this...I really didn't know about leaving my mom with a stranger....but what convinced me was an agency that offers ClearCare care management software . I can virtually see everything that goes on during the day by logging onto ClearCare's website. I can see when the caregiver arrives at my mom's house, when she gives her her medicine, when she takes care of meals, etc. It has been so reassuring! I also get alerted if something doesn't get done properly. If you need to get away from the stress of caregiving, this is definitely the best solution.
