My mom is 90yrs. old and is a sweet and loving soul, although she can be very stubborn and has become extremely sensitive to any perceived criticism, whether it's real or imagined. I spent three weeks with her in November and the beginning of this month and the strain was very difficult on me by the third week. My sister lives close to her and visits nearly every day, shops for her, and cooks dinner for her. I wish I could be of more help but it is very hard on me, and my sister and I are not on the best of terms which adds to the stress. I feel guilty about not being there for at least a couple of days per week just to help her with things that need to be done and every day health concerns. In truth I really feel I should be with her daily because she says she's lonely living alone. I feel very guilty about this and wonder if others struggle with this as well.
