Helping When One Spouse Just Can’t Keep Up

By April 15, 2012Care Manager Stories
LivHOME Care Managers can help couples deal with the challenges that occur when one spouse’s condition deteriorates faster than the other.

Tara Eisner, PhD, MFT, CMC, helped one Los Angeles-area couple through such a situation. The husband was living at home but was inactive and depressed, while his wife remained quite active and had a real zest for life.

The wife didn’t know how to handle the situation, so Tara worked with both of them to find an appropriate balance of activities that enhanced both the husband and wife’s quality of life.
