Need Help Desperately!! Caregiving is breaking up my parents’ marriage.
I don't know if this is the place to put this or not but I don't know where to look.. My Aunt passed away 2 years ago so my Grandmother who was living with her ended up moving in with my parents and my Mother was given the responsibility of caring for her. My Grandmother got kind of mean toward the end of her life a year ago and it was putting a huge strain on my parents relationship. Then they got to the point that they couldn't care for her anymore and they had to put her in a nursing home. Within a week she passed away due to nursing home neglect. Unfortunately this has been something that my father has never forgiven himself for (his mother). I think that there has been a deep resentment towards my Mother although he has never said anything. Next though within a week of my Grandmother passing away my Great Aunt moved in with them and the caregiving continued. It has continued for about a year now and my Mom is constantly feeling 2nd to either my Grandmother or my Aunt in my Dad's life.. I know that they love each other but they are now talking about divorce. My Dad doesn't understand but he is trying to get her help. My Mom says that counseling is not going to help but I think she needs someone other than me to talk to about the things that are going on, not that I don't want to listen or hear.. HELP PLEASE I need to know how to save my parents marriage.
