Here's a little update on my wife, they are now only allowing one visit per week because of a slight spike of Covid. This really ticks me off, I can only see the woman I'd been living with for fourteen years, once a week for less than an hour.
Unfortunately, Cathy's son has power of attorney over her, don't ask me why, it's all a bit strange. Anyway, I'm going to talk with him about bringing her back home, we can hire a caregiver to be with her during the day, I'll be home in the evening and hospice will continue to come in the morning every week day. The nurse will continue to see her once or twice a week. But, she'll be home where she belongs. Not to mention, he'll save a ton of dough, the house she is in charges $3,500 a month. I did some research and we could hire a caregiver for between $10-12 an hour.
I'll let you know what happens.

Thanks for that update! I think that the biggest plus to this is that your wife will be better off at home, with loved ones around her. Wishing you and your wife all the best. Please keep us posted.
