Caring for Mom

Started by

I have been living with my Mother since 1993. My father passed away in 2006. My mother has always been sick with asthma. She had hip surgery. She is 85. She spends a lot of time in her room looking through old bills, old bank statements, old insurance papers, old papers, etc. .... She likes to drink beer most every day. She watches TV in her room also. She can walk, but very slow. The only time she gets out, is when she wants to go to Frys, Wallgreens, Safeway, or maybe Pennys, Walmart. She cannot drive, too dangerous..... Dr. has not restricted her, as of yet. I work full time and try to take care of her, but sometimes it gets too frustrating, as she gets angry, and yells at me.... What can I do?
