When Jim came home from rehab he was unable to walk or climb many stairs. He needed and still needs twenty four hour care.
We have a multi-level home with the bedrooms on the top level and the family level a flight down. Until his fall we had shared a bedroom with the other two rooms being a winter studio and an office. A few years back we had added a powder room with a walk in shower to the family room level so we decided that it was best to have him there where he wouldn't need much help.
The television and entertainment system is there and I bought a large LazyBoy lounger for him to recline in. A nephew helped me bring a bed from my daughter's home and we set up his little suite. I'd be with him in the early evening to watch the news and a short sitcom from Netflix.
Then I'd go to my nest and he'd go to bed - usually around 6:30.
Teddy and I would retreat to our nest. It was a nice way to end the day. Not a perfect arrangement but certainly one that worked.
