This is a very good question and one I do not have a great answer for. I suppose the time for a nursing home comes when it is either unsafe for the patient to remain at home or when the stress of taking care of the patient becomes detrimental to your health. I imagine it is hard to make such a decision and I hope you have a support network that can help you make it. Please do remember, putting your husband into a home does not mean you are abandoning him, it means you love him so much you want to ensure he has the proper care.
