I got a call at work from one of the caregivers to tell me she got and "odd call" from my mother. She didn't answer the phone as she was in the bathroom but Mom left a message. Mom called to tell her that morning caregiver was sick and that afternoon caregiver may not want to come in because she may get it. Morning caregiver called me at 5:54 this morning (now mind you she comes in to work at 7 am) to ask if Mom told me she had been at doctor yesterday. Mom didn't tell me, plus Mom has mild dementia so Mom probably didn't remember if she had been told. IT IS NOT MOM'S RESPONSIBILITY TO TELL ME WHEN A CAREGIVER IS SICK...IT IS THEIRS!!! ARGH! Then afternoon caregiver goes on to tell me that Mom has been "snippy" and wants to rearrange her bedroom again and how Daddy moved all that furniture by himself so caregiver should be able to.
I am not in high school anymore. It is pitiful that grown women (in their 50's) have to act like this!
Thanks for listening!
