I’m constantly feeling overwhelmed! Working full time, and trying best to balance family obligations. Mom with dementia refuses to acknowledge has a problem and doctors and social workers don’t want her living on own any longer. Our family concurs.
I am stressing how to move someone to assisted living or board and care who is refusing to leave home.
My fear is removing her from home kicking and screaming. I do have POA and doctor recommendations in writing.
My work is being affected due to taking time off for mom appointments and constant calls during day regarding mom.
My home life is affected because my family needs attention that I can’t give because time with mom.
Mom feels I’m taking over life and treating her like her opinion doesn’t matter, says she was fine before I got in her business. I remind her about unpaid bills, rent, and imaginary people she says living with her she said people forget things when they age.
I have the task this week of deciding between Assisted living and board or care for mom both options she’ll hate. I know this needs to be done but the anxiety is getting to me. I want to scream!
