My only sibling and I live hours away from her. We are taking two week shifts going to her home. I still work and have a husband and a young adult child at home with moderate special needs. My sibling is retired, but has a lot of responsiblities with his family in another state. The care we are giving mother can easily be done in our homes. These extended absences are taking a toll on us and our families. We are missing many family events because the entire family cant always come to her house because of the distance. She does not want any other caregivers besides us. We love taking care of her and getting her out of the rehab facility was the best decision we made for her. Assisted living is not an option near her rural home. Medically she is okay and going to one of our homes for a few days would not interfere with her daily care and we would always get her back home for her doctor visits. Becuase she is wheelchair dependent she refuses to go out in public except for church in her hometown. Any suggestions? I'm riddled with guilt, but I'm missing weddings, events with my husband's family and not to mention time off at work is putting a strain on the rest of the company which I manage. My brother and I are working very well together on this, but we are getting concerned as this has only gone on for a couple of months. The future is frightening for all 3 of us. Looking for support and ideas!
