My mother thinks I gave up on her because she in the nursing home.
Mom has put me on the ultimate guilt trip. After five years of taking care of her full-time, and falling numerous times in our apartment has been put in the nursing home. Now she is accusing me of having given up on her and telling me I don't care about her anymore. The truth is I am the only family member coming to visit her regularly and doing things for her on a regular basis at the nursing home. I am still spending my afternoons over there and most of the day Sunday. I had things pretty much on an even keel until Medicaid told mom she had to cash in her life insurance policies and that they were counted as assets, now she refuses to sign the papers and is fighting being in the nursing home.
