My 63-year-old mother is trying to take care of her 93-year-old mother. How do I help them since they are both need assistance at home?
My mother is having a lot of health issues with her neck (had surgery almost 3 yrs. ago) due to degenerative disk arthritis, fibromyalgia and numerous other problems. She is trying to take care of her mother who is 93 yrs old (my grandmother) that lives with her. My grandmother seems to be getting in a state of mind that appears to be deteriorating, taking meds wrong (runs out too soon on some and others has too many left over when she shouldn't is one example), doesn't understand a lot of what is being said to her. I could go on and on. I try to help as much as I can, but I am responsible for 2 disabled kids and can't do a whole lot. I am wondering if there are any agencies in the area that could come in and help them both with some daily activities. They live in the Phenix City, AL area. I am very concerned for both of them, especially my grandmother. She has some mobility issues and refuses to use her walker, she barely wants to use a cane.
