For Better or Worse

My name is Margaret and I write about spousal caregiving.

My husband has Muscular Dystrophy and his elderly father lives with us.  I often feel that I am running a retirement home.  I am the home health aide, cook, housekeeper, driver, and activities director.  I left my job to be full time caregiver for both of them.  It is my full time labor of love to keep us happy and safe. I am lucky to be the wife and daughter-in-law for two very special men.


This blog is about the good and bad days of spousal caregiving.  I find therapy in writing about how we handle what life keeps throwing at us.   I choose to look for the humor in our fun adventures and be honest in the moment during the hard days.  I hope you will find something here that speaks to you and your situation.

Caregiving can be isolating and sometimes overwhelming.  You are not alone.  I hope you will join me and we can live this adventure of caregiving together.
