I am fairly new to all of this, I am caring for both my dad 87 yrs who had a stroke and mom 83 yrs who has early stages of dementia and epilepsy. Problem is, we brought them to live with us here in the states , since my uncle who cared for them passed away in August. Every single day they keep saying they want to go home, that can not happen there is absolutely no one to take care of them. When we went to my uncle funeral my mother was forgetting to take her meds, had a couple of seizures in 1 month and dad was taking aspirin and his stroke meds like it was candy. When I took them to their dr, dad had lost 22 lbs in less than 6 months and mom was severely anemic. Their doctor here in the states highly recommends they are not to be sent back home since they are not able to care for themselves. Since they have been with me 7 months) dad has gain weight, mom is not anemic and no seizures. My mom says if we don't take them home they will run away, I just really hate hearing this, they just don't understand they cannot be alone 3000 miles away! We are 5 sisters we really get along well, we all take turns caring for them. They live in the apartment downstairs from me, 2 bedroom room, very nice accommodations I cook,clean .... My sisters take turns taking them on weekends. But AGAIN they want to go home, I really don't know how to handle this, they are so hard headed !!!
