I am thinking of placing my mother in a facility, but how do you know when it's time?
I just joined this forum and this is my first post. I'm extremely thankful for this forum because it has helped me maintain my sanity through my years of caregiving for my mother who is over 90 years old. She has Parkinsons and early stage dementia. But right now I'm beyond burnout. I'm exhausted and angry and feel like screaming all the time. I know my situation is not as challenging as others, so when I read their posts it gives me strength to know that others are coping with situations that are more difficult than mine. I am thinking of placing my mother in a facility, but how do you know when it's time?
