I am the caregiver for a 65 year old senior whom was diagnosed with Early onset Adult Alzheimer's Disease.
I have been sick maybe one day this entire year. I have had a migraine for two days, and really needed to take the time for myself, and this daughter, whom has not had a hand in any of the things that I do with her mother during the day, just cannot believe I would make her life so miserable by calling in sick. Keep in mind, I found my own replacement.
This girl is 30 years old, and feels she owns me. The worse of it. I am paid less than $200 for a week.
Can someone help me with how to turn around the situation so that I am in control? I feel that this daughter has no thanks for what I do, and just expects me to be at her beckon call.
Sure, I am caring for an Alzheimer's patient, but this gets me very burned out, when the family does not even know what we do during the day, or take the time to go to any of her brain fitness classes that I found for her. Advice?
