I have gradually been taking on more and more care for my mother and now I am fed up. She has persistently refused any consideration of professional home care. No, there is no one who can persuade her, no friends and so on. Yes, I did contact local agencies and they say there is nothing they can do if she's not going to accept them into her home. Yes, I have tried all the positive stuff when I talk to her about it. No, there is no one else the family who can help. No, she will not listen to a doctor and has not religious minister.
So, now i feel backed into a corner and can't think of any alternatives than to just give her strict boundaries as to how much I will visit and what I will or will not do. Then, just leave it up to her and if she decides to do without the care at all, so be it.
She has advanced Parkinson's and at severe risk of falling. I have read and heard all the advice on to how to persuade her and nothing has worked. So, I should I just put my foot down and withdraw most of the care I have been giving her? I would appreciate any advice or shared experiences.
