I'm just overwhelmed with my dad. He still lives in his house, and he's mentally ok. He can't walk much and he had a stroke several years ago, and has aphasia. I'm there in the AM and PM. Luckily, my job hours are flexible, but it's really tough and he doesn't want any "outsiders" in to help clean, etc..He does cook a little. But, I'm worn out washing, cleaning, driving to doctors, banks, grocery stores and such. I spend a lot of my own money because he doesn't think certain things are necessary. My brother and sister in law are local, but only visit once or twice a year. I know it doesn't sound right, but I wish I could get paid for all the stuff I do.
