My mother is a full-time caregiver to my grandmother, who is in poor health but is not completely infirm-she can still bathe herself and all of that, although she is starting to need more help as well.
Grandma has been living with my parents for about 5 years now, but her condition has only recently deteriorated. I have started to notice changes in my mother's emotional health and demeanor recently, and it has made me very worried for her. I know my grandma can be demanding and I know that it has taken a toll on my mom. Some other recent life events have also been stressful for my mom.
My question is how to approach my mom about what I have been seeing? She used to be so happy all the time and full of life and fun. Now she is snappy and often upset. My mother and I have always been very close and I really miss my old mom and want her back so much. Any suggestions are welcome.
