Has anyone had anxiety over finding the "perfect" caregiver?
My mother is in about stage 5 of Alzheimers and we are keeping her in her home. My sister lives with my mom and cares for her fulltime. I help out quite a bit and have her with me when I'm not out of town, etc.. Just got back from vacation to find out my mother had a fall and broke her arm the day after I left. My sister didn't want to tell me until I got back. I know it was an innocent accident on my sister's part. We have since put up a bed rail so my mom can't get out of bed on her own. My sister also sleeps with her every night. We need more help but I struggle with finding someone who is not only a caretaker but also caregiver. Someone who will truly care for her and about her. I struggle with this so much. We had some help a while back but it just wasn't a real good fit although she was a nice person. I could really use some insight on this.
