Both my elderly parents 87 and 85 have caregivers during the day and a few hours in the evening. They also have someone for five hours on the weekends. I committed to one day midweek to be their caregiver. Just before the weekend I start to stress and worry that I get a call that the caregiver will call out and the agency has no one who could fill in which is why I found a group of skilled aids who are used to fill-in privately. I am 56 and have two children in middle school. I worry about missing out on their weekend activities in case there is no one to cover helping out and my parents. My brother has been temporarily staying there since my dad‘s fall also does not want to place them in AL. Unfortunately I feel that this will be my life going forward having to constantly worry plus I live an hour drive away so I’m not totally nearby to fill-in. My dad is very adamant and does not want to go into assisted living, and my mom has vascular dementia. The worrying makes me sick to my stomach and I feel that I will never be able to make plans on the weekend with my husband/kids or go away for weekend since I feel like I need to always be on standby. Appreciate any suggestions.
