I had to quit work 2 yrs ago when mother suddenly started to not know me. Since then I have been her full time lone caregiver. I fantasize about returning to life, but realistically, I don't see any way we can afford placement for her. Her social security, pension & savings, plus the rent from my parents' home (which is in my name) might cover her in an ALF for a few yrs. She is healthy as a horse, so a nursing home and Medicaid are not appropriate, but her mind is pretty much gone. When the money runs out, I'd have to take her back home, right? which would be another trauma, and me even older than I am now (55) and struggling to care for her again. I'm willing to sell everything I have at this point, because it's either that or suicide, but is there another way I'm missing?
