I cared for my mom with Alzheimer's the last 6 years. She lived with me for 3 years with no help from family! Only horrible accusations from wicked in-laws. I have 2 brothers but they have not been much support because they feel they are in the middle of my and their wives differences in how to care for our mother. I had to put my mom in an assisted living nursing home about 8 months ago. She did not want to go and is still wanting out! Last summer I visited about 4-5 times a week because she was not adjusting well. They have her meds sorted out now to calm her but she is still seeking to get out! If she keeps up she will have to move to a locked down facility that specializes mostly in Alzheimer’s. She has a wristband doors are opened in the day but locked at night. I am debating on looking into more of a home care facility that is locked at all times. Just got her accepted on Medicaid 3 months ago. I am a single mom with a 14 year old daughter so I have had to slow my visits! She has been seeking exits again and the staff says she does better when I visit! They understand my situation and are trying to keep her occupied but I feel so guilty not being able to visit her like I would like to! My business has suffered tremendously! My stress level and body are suffering! I feel so spread thin! My daughter and my mom have been my top priority for 8 years! Moving my mom was so tough she is only 75. I am needing to build my business back up again and focus on me first! Just finished at dentist and have my physical and mammogram appointments scheduled after 2 years late. Any words of wisdom or advice on getting over some of the guilt of leaving her? I know I have done right and moving her was necessary but still feel horrible! What a horrible disease!
