My Mom had been taking care of my Dad who has been sick since June 2012. I would help her in between my work hours. Fortunately we all live in the same house. I would do all of the cooking for the household and take care of my Dad's meds. My parents had set up living quarters in our finished basement for themselves and my husband and I live in the main part of the house. I would drive them to where they needed to go, as my Dad hadn't been driving since he got sick.
