Sarahy, your question is too broad. Are you asking if there's others here that are caring for both parents? Or - if you're like me - when I suddenly became the main caregiver from one parent to now Both Parents who were Bedridden. I googled "how to take care of 2 bedridden elderly parents." And found this site.

If that is the case, please tell us what's your Current home situation. What's their health issues? Are they insured, and if yes - Medicare? Medicaid? Private insurance? Do you need help to start finding someone to visit the home? Please give us more information.

I lived with and helped care for my father and mother for over two years. It was actually easier caring for them both than caring for my mother alone. My dad never talked or listened, but he was there to keep my mother company. He was a bit like a buffer, even though my mother was really hard to handle during that time. When he died, it was just her and me. Oil and water. Fire and ice.

Yes, Sarah I cared for my mom with Alzheimer's and her hubby with general age related decline for four years. Two months ago they were moved, him to assisted, mom to memory care, sad moving them was not my decision, it was time, I am still absolutely exhausted! And two sibs in the area, within ten miles, did next to nothing to help, in fact, the opposite, caused stress at every opportunity!

We do need more information about you and your parents since it's not on your profile.

Seems like most of the caregiving children caring for a parent or two are doing it alone. Is there a specific question you need help with?
