I have two sisters who don't live too far away, but Mom counts on me for all errands, as she doesn't drive. She says my sisters are "too busy" and she "doesn't want to bother them." I am a widow like my Mom, but unlike her, I am trying to create a "new" life for myself. The two sisters don't speak to each other. I cannot seem to create a schedule whereby each of us takes care of certain issues for Mom. One sister offered to food shop every two weeks, then doesn't always show up. The other sister makes offers, then withdraws them. She also criticizes whatever anyone else does. Often I do things just because it seems easier, but then I feel resentful. Mother's mind is sharp and she is financially secure, but she doesn't want to pay any kind of helper because he/she would be a "stranger," and she doesn't want to spend the money. It's been over 3 years now of helping Mom stay in her home and taking care of my own home. I really feel stuck at this point. I would appreciate any and all suggestions!
