I am 51 years old, and recently had to leave my job to care for my mother who suffered a stroke and needs 24/7 care. I couldn't even consider placing her in a nursing home, since my husband and I have had his mom living with us for nearly five years. My mother-in-law is 88 and has CHF, a pacemaker, moderate to severe dementia. My mom has tremendous incontinence, is a major fall risk, has aphasia from the stroke, and moderate dementia. I love teaching and miss it very much. I am worried about how future employers will view my leave of absence. Thankfully I send both ladies to a medical adult daycare which is wonderful. I am also looking into getting the home care company back in when I hopefully return to work. I have had clinical depression for over 17 years and take medication, along with seeing a therapist. I battle feeling sad often. I really would love to get involved in an active, supportive, inspirational, and helpful caregiver's support group. I attended one offered at the medical adult daycare but it just didn't suit my needs. Most caregivers there were caring for their spouses, not their parents. Is there anyone out there with a similar situation that can refer me to a really good support group.
