My mom has had dementia for 5 years now and I have been retired for 2-1/2 years now and taking care of her in my home. She's getting worse to the point I can't take it anymore, I'm single never married no kids I should be able pick up and go when I want to but can't because I have Mom. I have four siblings and none of them help me with mom they all live out of state and mom never wants to leave.
So I get the double whammy they figure I'm the single one of the family and
they say what the heck, he can take care of mom. The one that sometimes does help me is the older sister of the two. Every time I talk about a home, mom gets all worked up so I don't know what to do. I never thought it would be this hard to be a caretaker.
