Just got back from taking care of my husband's 92 year-old grandmother since last Monday. Was going to just let TT go this week but then thought of this at the last minute--litterly fifteen to midnight! Won't get to visit other TT until I get some sleep.

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It's easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Hi Joy,
You've got a very good list - the list of someone who has done some elder caregiving. Respite care and support are the answers to getting many of the things you list.

You and your husband are good people, doing what you can for his grandmother. Take care and take care of yourselves, too. Carol

This is a great list. As our population ages we will all need to take heed of this TT - you are great people to be caring for your Grandmother.

Care givers need some tender care too.

My TT is up.
