Caregiver for my grandmother (90).
Hi, I just joined this page tonight as I need a group where I can get some tips and read about people's experiencea in caring for their parents and grandparents. My grandmother is moving into our home on Saturday as she is now bedridden after being in hospital for two weeks. My Mother has no interested in caring for her, my Uncle where is she was staying works all day and so does his wife. My gran is now wearing and diapers and is totally dependent on me to bathe her. That is why I decided to let her move in with my husband, my two sons and I, as I am home all day except when I have to do errands, pick up children from school and drive them up and down to various activities. Do any of you have any advice for me? I know that I am offering up alot by caring for her (I am 38 years old, one teenager son and a 9 year old) but I owe her as much because she did alot foe me and my grandmother means the world to me.
