Re: Have you found intimacy with loved ones while caregiving?

Message 1 of 2

My husband has advanced Parkinson's.  It affects his speech and fine motor coordination so written and verbal communication are difficult.  Sleeping together is also a problem due to his restlessness and talking in his sleep.

One of the things I've done is to walk before he wakes in the morning and then snuggle up with him for 30 minutes when I get back.  So I'm now getting the exercise I need and also having close physical time with him that I also need.

How have you found intimacy with loved ones during the process of caregiving?  Share some ways you connect or stories you have about making your relationship stronger despite the demands of caregiving a loved one?
