Family doesn't care to notice the situation, how can I help myself while helping my 83-year-old single aunt.
I moved in with my 83 year old aunt..upstairs, she was helping me I was helping her. And I am burned out. She is lonely, angry, shouldn't drive, needs more help then I can give. She has tons of money and insurance, however since I am here she refuses to admit that she needs more help, even when I gently suggest her hiring a part time care taker. I have resorted to just ignoring her most of the time, because I don't know what to do. Her family and my owns attitude is, " so leave her, she will be fine..." and in reality she won't. and that is not my point. anyway - so very sad, all of this. and it doesnt have to be.
