My husband Larry. He just had his 68th birthday. He was diagnosed with Alzhiemers when he was 61. He had to retire early. We lived on my income until I retired also at 61 in 2010 to take care of him. He was getting SS at that time. We lived on that and savings. As a caregiver I am home with him most of the time. I have a respite worker that comes for 4 hours once a week. I also rely on the help of friends. Our children do not live near us. I am doing well and really resent it when people call me “intitled” We have never asked for anything we didn’t feel that we earned. I think I will need in home nursing care for him soon and cuts to medicare scare me. He wants to stay in the home he built himself.
