I am my 88 year old mothers caregiver, I had to move in with her after she fell and broke her hip. she is afraid to be alone. I retired early to do this, I do everything for mom, cook, clean, laundry, doctor appts, pay bills, just everything. I moved out of my own home, my husband visits me every day. (I retired at age 62) my social security is not as much as it would be if I retired at full retirement age. I don't get paid to take care of mom, I have 7 siblings but everyone says they can't help.(5 of them live a few states away, two widowed sisters live 1 1/2 hours away) If my mother gives me a little money (300.00 every 3 or 4 months) one of my sisters tells everyone I am taking her money so now I am doing this and not getting paid. The being away from my own home is taking a toll on me and my marriage. When I leave to go to my own house my mother sulks and makes me feel guilty for being gone for a couple of hours. I feel unappreciated and taken advantage of. if I were to hire someone for 2 or three days a week how much would I pay them? I do have home health come in a couple of days a week for one hour for her showers and light house work. Any suggestions?
