For the past 5 years I have taken her to appointments, take care of her finances, pay her bills, do her med pour, run errands while working full-time. My husband has recently stepped up to the plate to help out his Mom too. Her other 3 children call regularly but do not come to visit. She is a very emotional woman and is always seeking attention. For the most part, her mind is normal for 83 y.o. She is incontinent, legally blind (vision in one eye), Stage 1 liver disease, COPD from 2nd hand smoke, anxiety & depression, HBP, etc. She does not drive, cook, do laundry, clean her apartment. She can bathe and dress herself. There are aides that come into the home but there is a shortage in our area so after trying for 2 years to get 14 hours of care per week to no avail, we are burned out. We would like her to move into a nursing home where she can get care 24/7. She is totally against it but we are burned out. In such a small community and a remote area , we are unable to hire help. No one is in a financial situation to pay a decent wage to get private care. If we do not pick up the slack then she will not have the care she needs. She really needs to be placed in a nursing home and there are no assisted living homes that accept Medicaid. What can we do?? Her 2 daughters do not help and do not have a place where she could go to live with them as they work fulltime too.
