    Care Givers

    Who is your primary care giver? Are you satisfied with this arrangement?
    What would you do differently?

    I answered personally paid caregiver. I interviewed about 10 people and she is wonderful. Not only does she help me but she also keeps my house clean. Don't know what I would do without her.

    What little assistance I need

    I am fiercely independent and only ask my spouse to help me get my pants up and down. She does, however, do most of the cooking and cleaning. Not because I cannot but because she does not like the way I clean and she thinks my best cooking is done on the BBQ.

    "And so it begins."

    Many people use a combination of the above. I would include "significant other" under spouse as well.

    Care Givers

    Dogger: You're my kinda guy. To KLD, you're correct, SO should have been a category. I'm suprised that only 15 folks have responded to this poll. S---t, Most of us, except Dogger, have care givers. Let's get with it and post your reply. I'll tabulate the data and post. Forgivbe any typos, it's th4e second martini of the evening. Redneck.

    Hopefully, we will get more people responding to this poll. At least, as of today, we have 31 votes. It is interesting that the category with the mostest is spouse. Incidentally, I am moving this poll to the caregiver's forum. Wise.
