Im the only one to take care of my mom and I work during the week. My mom is good about not trying to cook or go outside. She just sits all day and watches whatever is on the tv. She may read a little. I'm considering having someone come in to spend time with mom during the day so she will get some company now that my youngest son has moved out. I am anticipating a fight about having someone come; she will probably tell me she doesn't need anyone to come over. Curious how others experience has been. Also, I feel like grieving even when my mom is alive because the friend/helper I've known isn't there anymore. Anyone else feel that way?
