I am the primary caregiver to my mom. She broke her coccyx bone after a fall on June 1st. She should be healed by now. She has no other diagnoses except for lack of better terms stubbornness. She wants to be served three meals a deal and snacks etc etc. she is quite capable of doing this herself but won't. And when confronted about it, she says she is in pain from her broken bone and goes to lie down. I just broke my leg. I can not put weight on it. I can't not cook a normal dinner. It's pretty much self serve around here. My sons have been doing laundry since it's in basement and I can't hobble there. Mom is complaining that I should do laundry everyday I reminded her I have a broken leg, she replies with go down stairs on your butt.
I am at the point where I have Visiting nurses coming in this week to evaluate her in her home to see if she can go back with part time aides. One brother is against this (who lives local and hasn't help all)
I can't not food shop, get her to dr appts. My hubby has to leave work to drive her. This is not his not my sons responsibly! How do I get brother to help out more!?!
