My mother now requires 24/7 care. Before I was able to take off and leave her alone for a couple of hours. I can't afford to pay someone to sit with her while I run errands like other people do to live. Like grocery shopping, doctors office visit (I have disability), check the mail, go to the bank, etc.
I'v Been able to get hospice care for my mom, but there's a long waiting list for volunteer "sitters"
I have one family member willing help, but she's only able to sit with her for a couple hours. The rest of the family can't be bothered. My mother's insurance covers five-day respite care per month but with her combative dementia Its been very difficult to find a place that will take her. especially after I got her to go once but I got a phone call to come pick her up after only two days. My mom refuses to go to adult daycare. My sisters are against putting her in a group home. My sister has power of attorney.
Please help! I feel like I'm dying inside. Any advice would be welcome. Thank you
