Elderly financial matters.
I have been a caregiver for both parents (lost dad in 2012) and now take care of mom..I have nursed her through open heart surgery, carotid endarcterectomies, upper teeth removal, three falls one in which a rod was surgically placed in her left thigh, stitches to the back of her head from another fall, emergency appendectomy, three urinary tract in-fections and dehydration,etc. Plus, I set up all her meds she takes twice a day, plus her insulin twice daily. She has also been hospitalized for impaction of stool as she doesn t drink enough. Aside from all the medical duties, I also clean house, do laundry and run errands. However, my sister is getting lots of money whenever she wants it she just calls- because she is mom s "baby".
It is not fair and mom just sent her money again. It is her money to do with what-ever she feels,,I just had to vent and get it off my chest that I cannot help feeling extremely resentful..Little sis does nothing for mom but ask for money and then for years now, claims that I spend all her money!! When in fact it is her!!! Anyone else going through this stress??!!! Best- Sandi W.
