In response to your comments, I am facing the exact same situation with my poor sweet mommy. She started going down hill with her memory and misplacing things in her home, it was just overwhelming and still is. I have 4 sisters who do not get along with each other, I am so ashamed of them. It seems everything is left up to me but this is too much emotionally on me and I need help with mom.
I do not know how families could be so selfish and distant at a time like this. I am not at all like my siblings, and never will be. I just asked one of my sisters to share the load by taking mom to dr visits so I could get a break. She is willing to do so but there is so much jealousy with all of them and I know there will be issues soon. I don't care, all I want is to keep mom at home as long as I can. If I have to pay for help to keep her at home I will do what I can possibly do and will not rely on the others in my family.
This is my first post and hope to find peace by sharing that we are both going thru the same, it seems. Patience is what we need during this painful period in our lives.. Good luck! God Bless us all!!
