I cared for Mom 24 years. My mom lived 10 miles from me. I worked a full time job. I am married and was raising a daughter. For the 24 years I cared for her my 2 brothers lived 2 hours drive from my mom, and the third brother lived 5 hour drive from mom. My mother was a widow since she was 43 years old. My father died when we were all little kids. My mother lost her family in the holocaust. There was never, in 24 years, a Saturday morning where I wasn't called by Mom to be asked to come and see her. I worked a highly stressful public service job. There were times that my mother would cry because her sons visited very infrequently. (Oldest brother maybe 2 to 3 times a year and lived 2 hours away, middle brother 6 to 7 times a year and lived 2 hours away, and youngest brother 3 to 4 times a year and lived 5 hours away.) My mother and I were shy about asking for more help from them in the form of social visits. She never needed financial help from any family member. When she had medical or emotional issues I left my home or my job to give her the care she needed. As a result I lost time at work and suffered financial loss. I also was always feeling emotionally drained due to knowing how alone she felt and constantly having to make a choice of: Do I leave my daughter and husband to spend an evening with her? I visited my mother at least twice a week spending 2 to 5 hours with her. In the last 2 years of her life my husband, who worked at night, spent 5 to 7 days a week for 8 to ten hours a day. I loved my mother dearly and knew the suffering she went through losing her family in the holocaust, then losing my father after only ten years of marriage. She was left with 4 little children who all became very successful people. My emotional life and my financial life were drained, although I certainly am not poverty struck. My siblings did not pay in any form the price I did for my mother’s care. How do ask for some type of compensation?
