I just became my Mothers caregiver. I need help finding resources for financial aid. I am 52 yr old female 6ft tall. I have degenerative disc disease and RA. My mother needs 24/7 care. She has a permanent tracheostomy and had open heart surgery at age 84. The trache she has had since 2002. Anyway she has had a difficult time recovering after this surgery. too many things went wrong. I have had home health care coming over for a few minutes two days a week but there starting too fade out. Her surgery was in June 6th. She was in icu for 25 days then sent to a skilled nursing center for 3 1/2 months. She's been home under my care since Oct 18th, 2015. I know that I can improve myself I just need some resources to help me. Like How to bath her in bed. No-one has shown me that yet and I make a mess of it. As well as kill my back. And I do ware a back brace (doesn't help) Sometimes my ADD kicks in I my schedule get all twisted around. Her meds aren't given to her on time because for example I gave her a bath today and washed her hair after that we were both exhausted and I plum forgot her meds until 1PM today. I feel terrible. I need more organization tips. and how to take a brake tips. stuff like that. Maybe where I could find a chat-room online to let off a little steam. Any thoughts? Thank you for spending the time to read my dilemma. and double thanks if you've answered.
