Family meeting: You can invite your close relatives to a "family meeting". Where you can express your concerns. If you both have children together then they may commit to release you from your caregiving at least few hours a week. They may come up with other suggestions or ideas to help you. Always consult your medical provider about any help in terns of rehabilitation, need x devices etc.

Caregiving: Unfortunately, care giving is often left to one family member. Please start w/a gentle note to everyone asking for help and drawing up a suggested schedule then or later. Try your best not to let whatever happens cause a rift in the family. You do need to speak up or it will come out "sideways" so to speak and be less productive that way. Peace and good health.
