Grr, I hate this so much, but my grandmother calling me at 3 in the morning for a non-emergency was the last straw. Not in the terms of anger, but it's so difficult to help my grandmother who's 30 miles away, she currently lives with family, but only trusts me to do literally EVERYTHING for her, but I'm in the middle of trying to buy a house, get married and have kids and all with my fiance. I'm 25 if it matters, but I've been taking care of her for 3 years.
Because of how situtations fell into place, I'm highly considering a retirement home. She's not doing so well anymore with her dementia and her anxiety about EVERYTHING is through the roof. She's afraid to even go to the bank because she "doesn't know what to do anymore" She consistantly tells me about how she's having trouble with this, and granted, financial issues is something I HAVE to help her with. That's not a huge deal for me. But, she's living with her niece & their family at the moment so there's plenty of people to assist her with her outings. Why is she always calling me for help? I cannot help. I don't own a car. How am I suppose to see her to give her assistance? Apparently, nobody else is stepping up to the plate (or she's not even asking them for help!! Embarrassment, maybe?)
But it's just..this happened at such an inopportune time. I've been trying my best to put in applications for her for assisted living, I'm trying to buy a Power of Attorney JUST in case... but now, I don't know. I don't know what she needs...I'm probably gonna have to call the doctor just so I'm up to date with her meds..
Am I doing the right things so far?
