Minding Our Elders: Spousal caregiving can be isolating

DEAR CAROL: My wife has advanced Parkinson’s complicated by dementia and needs constant care. She’s mostly bedridden. I love her dearly, and we’ve spent considerable time talking about our past vacations and other enjoyable things we’ve shared. We have no children. As much as I love her, I’m finding myself becoming extremely lonely and isolated as she becomes less and less able to communicate.
