My brother and I have been sharing the duties of giving my mother her meds every day. We understand the importance of routine and try to keep it the same everyday, however on occasion we have to switch our schedules due to work, etc..
We understand that being consistent is important but feel that she would prefer that he do all of her meds morning and night. If that makes her feel safe we both will do what it takes but how can i contribute to the daily routine if she does not want me there? I try to not take it personally as I know this part of the disease. It's not fair to him to have carry the entire load. I tried to explain to her why sometimes I'm the one who has to be there instead of him but I don't think she quite understands. How do we handle this?
