Mother has dementia and rapidly declining mental health and physical health. She is frequently agitated and verbally abusive, she doesn't remember these outbursts. She is unsafe by herself and unaware fully, of her own safety. She skips medications and meals and is often paranoid. She is incontinent of urine. Cannot accomplish activities of daily living. Refuses to consider medications for her behavior and dementia issues because she does not recognize them.
I can no longer care for her in the home, I have psoriatic arthritis (in hands and feet). I am waiting for a judicial disability review with a judge. I have at least a year longer to wait for that. I am in College to get an associates degree for medical billing and coding, I can no longer work as a nurse. I am sleep deprived and emotionally and mentally exhausted. This puts mother at risk also, because she is living and depending on someone who can no longer care for her. She refuses and mention of facility care. My siblings want what she wants and will not listen to me regarding what she needs. I need to protect myself and mostly her. I have reached out to her physician, who said for me to choose a facility and she would admit her. Mother and my siblings won't allow that. I insisted on home health care at least and her doctor did order it. I am unable to coordinate it, and have problems with the nurses aide, PT, OT, ST, and social worker (who has yet to call me, even though I asked to speak with her two weeks ago when mother started receiving services) asking mother to schedule her care, and also calling her to schedule care visits, and they were all informed to call me or my sister to schedule visits. Not one of them has called me or my sister once. I need help obviously but soon I feel I may be needing legal help if she continues to be neglected. My siblings don't see this. HELP.
