Feeling ashamed because I realize that this is too hard.
My father recently passed away and my 74 year old mother, with late stage alzheimer's has moved in with me. We have a caregiver who comes daily, but evening and weekends are all me. I thought I could handle it, but within the last week I am just feeling hopeless. Very depressed and crying alot. it is so much work. She is like a giant 3 year old and needs help with everything. She doesn't know me or anyone else. I was so against placing her in a home, but now I feel like I will lose my mind if I dont...but that makes me depressed even more...Can anyone who has been in this situation offer some advice?
