I see lots of answers to those struggling, from those who have also struggled with similar issues, about placing their parent/parents in an appropriate facility for their condition.
My question is - how is this handled during this time of COVID-19, with so many people in the facilities dying?
My mom's Dementia worsens by the day. I spoke with a hospice nurse and even though I have to help her with everything (24/7), she didn't think she needs it yet. I have no relatives in my state to help me.
I am definitely not taking care of myself and I am suffering from depression. I would be ashamed to say the every day things that I should be doing for myself and am not.
We do not have any "extra" money to hire help, even if they would come with the virus, I would be concerned for both of us as we have underlying conditions.
