My mother become ill suddenly in February. Literally, driving and living fine on her own then not knowing where she is and accusing people of robbing her. She even called the police and told them people were coming in under her bathroom sink. No help in sight. I tried getting her to stay with me and she would wander and leave doors open. I would have to work all day and leave when I got a call about her then go to her house every evening. Day and night. She was finally hospitalized, and this was good because it helped her finally get into long term care. Now I am still dealing with finances for her and most recently she is again hospitalized for pneumonia. I am the only one here for her. I have used most of my vacation and sick time but am about ready to have a breakdown. I do get chest pains lately. I am a single mother myself and working full time. I have been told that my employer does not offer family leave as they are a small employer, approximately 25- 30 employees. I just do not know how much more I can do.....Is there any options for some kind of leave that I am not aware of?
