My 61 year old wife was diagnosed two years ago with PD. I am having real difficulty trying to get involved with her care even though I am the primary caregiver. She has a medical nursing education and thinks I should know and understand all details about her medications, e.g., what they're for specifically, how thye interact, how they affect her, what they are intended to treat, etc. She also has severe hypoglycemia and lupus, so her medication list is rather comprehensive. I don't consider myself a good caregiver, and she frequently reminds me that that is also her opinion. I work full time and try to keep foods that she can eat in the house for her. I do the shopping and cooking, but her diet is very limited by the hypoglycemia. I don't really know why I'm writing all this, but I want to be a better caregiver. Has anyone had any dealings with one of those meal delivery companies?.......Blue Apron, etc.,? I need to provide her better and more complete meals. Maybe that would be a good place to start to improve my caregiving........
