I have been taking care of my 87-year-old mother who has Dementia and COPD. Now I may have breast cancer. Who will help mom now?
My brother and his wife are in denial and do not even know there is a problem. Further, mom refuses to go to assisted living or nursing home facility. She has outlived her assets and has no money to hire a nurse or home health aid to attend to her in the event I have to have chemo or radiation treatments. What can I do? Mom can not help herself anymore even with the most basic things like bathing or dressing. I am in total despair.
