My highly educated parents are 80-years-old and live independently. I don't know where to turn or what to do. Can you please give me some solid advice?
Mom is dad's caregiver. He is in and out of dementia, she is milder in hers. They call me all the time about each other. They drive me crazy. I'm not in good health myself and can't drop everything to run over each time they call. I stay on pin and needles. I can't convince them to sell and go to an upscale Assistant Living. They say they've put too much into the home and yard to leave it. They can't take care of either, not each other. I have two other sisters that live hrs. away. They've abandon me to take care of things. I don't know where to turn or what to do. Can you please give me some solid advice? I've been been trapped in their arguments for about 10 yrs. now. I can't take it much longer. My BP runs high, even with medicine. I've had one stroke because of them already. It is taking it's toll on me.Please Can you offer me some help?
