My screen name says it all. I am in a confused and conflicted state. I won't bore anyone with the details-particularly those who've been down this road-totally alone-for years. I'll get to the point. Mom has progressed to totally bedridden and requires 24/7 care. I'm middle aged, have health issues of my own and have lost everything-moving to a state 1k miles from Sunny/Warm Florida. My sibling is schizophrenic and mom enabled her so doesn't feel the need to help and just wants money. I'm out of work taking care of them. QUESTION: In home hospice, with whom I met today, will probably approve her as she is approx stage 6/7 on the FAST dementia scale. I am sick and terrified. But, when I see her alone (currently in Palliative care-insurance about to run out) we cannot afford the 10k per month. We will be wiped out in weeks. Should I bring her to her home of 40+ years which I fixed up? How long could the 'end' go on and what toll will it take on me physically, emotionally, financially, etc. or should I sell the home, get back to work and live with the guilt and worry. SO SORRY TO BE LONG WINDED, but this disease is unpredictable, complex and painful for all. I've never been so sad or conflicted. At least she is out of the mean/cruel to me stage, I pray!
