New here, what can you do to keep strong for loved one

Message 12 of 12

Hi everyone, I am new here.  I have been the primary caregiver to my darling wife of 59 years since she suffered a hip injury last year and now has a severe lack of mobility.  Obviously it has changed our lives.  I do what I can every day to keep her interested in things we always enjoyed and help her recovery.  I'll be honest, my daughter urged me to use this site for support.  Family and friends do what they can to help, but at the end of the day it is just me and my wife here.  I feel like I am doing OK, but wonder what do other caregivers do for themselves to stay strong and keep yourself going?  What do you do for your loved one to keep them engaged through recovery?  Thanks for sharing any insight.
