I've been the sole caregiver to my mom for the last 10 months, who has rapid onset of Alzheimer’s, Vascular and Lewy Body Dementia with behavioral disturbances and is completely incontinent and bed bound. She requires me to do everything for her. She does not even try to fix a pillow herself to be comfortable. She doesn't help at all when I have to turn her to change her and she is 220 pounds. If she doesn't get what she wants when she wants it, I suffer from constant non stop verbal abuse and not stop calling me. My 11 yr old son can't handle it anymore. I can't handle it. I need a break from all this madness and overwhelming amount of work. I am applying her for Medicaid this week but it will take 3-6 months I am told. In the meantime I am trying to find a place for respite care to get a break and the cheapest I've found is $5,560! How does anyone afford this?! Does anyone know anywhere that is cheaper. I am in Virginia Beach, VA. I just desperately need a break. I'm emotionally and physically exhausted.
