I have been her primary caregiver, "POA", medical contact, etc - Both parents live together 10 minutes away. Father mentally sharp, but frail. I am also his " medical dictionary", he was raised down south and never had faith in doctors. I am the "translator" for him. He keeps up house and runs necessary errands. Mom now sits in living room with him, doesn't speak to much, no conversations, very weak, stares off or just sleeps. He helps her up to her walker, into kitchen, or bathroom. Makes her meals. Then all over again. This has been 5-8 years now along with- quadruple bi-pass( 4 years ago), Artery and vascular issues legs, blocked arteries, previous strokes,blood clot issues, etc- but to weak to have surgery. Urine and bowel accidents, but wears pull up's - very slow with walker to make it 10 feet to bathroom sometimes. Home health is 2 days a week- the nurse check and therapy one day- home health other day to bathe and help with other denture, toilet, washing, transition, etc. while she is at house. Dad and I want to do everything 24/7 but found out along the way, we can not- my three other siblings, DO NOT go to house too visit, barely call, they just "text" me to check on her STATUS?? ( I am NOT a very nice sister when and if I answer them) -- now her "E.C.T"- therapy treatments she receives once or twice a month- are just "maintenance" sessions. The manic, bi polar, psychotic, medications and "cocktails" docs and neurologists, psychiatrist, psychologist, etc. -have tried over the years and through beginning of this year 2015, do not help her anymore. This is when we found out about this E.C.T therapy treatments. BUT- whats next????
