Hi, all. Glad I found this site.
My husband and I are newly married (2.5 months), and have been together for a year and a half total.
A couple weeks ago, his 89-year-old grandmother was sent to us after her daughter-in-law (my husband's mom) was burned out from taking care of her. Grandma's son (my father-in-law) had passed away last year, and gram had nowhere else to go. Her mobility is very limited, and she's mentally and physically declining more everyday.
We're getting into a routine with her, though ideally, her living in our home is not going to be a permanent solution, as we both work full-time. However, we're going to have to start from scratch in order to get her qualified for AL, as nothing of the sort had been done for her yet. We don't have medical directive or POA over her yet.
I'd appreciate any tips and advice from the more seasoned caretakers on here!
