Mom is declining rapidly. She is 70 and I am 48 w/SLE Lupus, married w/children. She has been with me full time for 4 years. I did a quick sale of her property early this year. Mom gets a small monthly income. I have finally called Dept on Aging in IL for any help. I quit my job a year ago because I couldn't leave mom at home alone with the stove, etc. Does anyone know of a 24/7 facility in IL or IN for private pay under 2K a month? I'm losing it and yes I feel guilty too.
