My mom is losing her memory and her body and health are failing. The doctors say there is nothing they can do. What can I do now?
I am having touble dealing with my mom, for 6 years I have been her cargiver I do everything with the help of my lovely wife. Mom is has a sharp mind but her helath otherwise is failing in everyway. Meds dont help, I take her to Dr after Dr all they say is she is 84 and not going to get better. I dont know what to do , she is in assisted living facility and has evrything she needs, but depressed and unhappy is an understatement. I have tried to make her comfortable and happy but it is not working and It is affecting me and my health.... lots of advise from family but no help just talk, so I am on my own (my wife is so helpful) I am afraid she will give up because I am her son and I am at the end of my rope .. dont know what to do , mom takes many meds (dont know why she is not getting better and she is miserable) HELP.. money is a concern , why should mom spend the end of her life so unhappy and hurting all the time... we have been to Doc after Doc had every test that they can do the results always the same, she is not going to getr better and is going to die, that is what I am told.. Can anyone tell me how to help her live out her life and appriciate what she has had not what she does not have anymore. I cannot sleep, my patience are at an end ... I try to understand that she is loosing her mind and helth and to understand but it is very very hard... I am hurting for her.......Scott
