How do you deal with the guilt of putting your mom in nursing home?
I'm trying to accept the fact that I have to put my Mom in Nursing home. But I feel so guilty and I don't know how to deal with it. I promised her I would take care of her for the rest of her life. But I'm burnout and there is no reasoning with her plus I cannot leave her for one second by herself because she very confused, lost and has no recollections of where things are and how they work. I have to give her instructions even in the bathroom because she thinks it an outhouse and she doesn't move fast enough so it gets messy sometimes. I have been trying to convinced myself that I did all I could and not to feel guilty but the guilt is still there. Any advice????
