We are in South Carolina and my 91 year old mother recently had a very negative reaction to a new medication that seems to have sent her over the edge. She has been out of the hospital for four days and even this morning did not know where she was. I am her sole caregiver and am rapidly becoming overwhelmed,especially with hardly being able to sleep at night. She has been with me for a year and the situation has gotten progressively worse as she wants to be in her home in NC. She is frail and blind, and that just is not possible. she spends most of her time in a depression over not being at home.. She has no assets and we cannot afford out of pocket nursing care. Can anyone please tell me where to start and what to do? She has an appointment with her doctor tomorrow......and if her mind remains this confused, I will not be able to care for her much longer.
I have just recently applied for Aid and Attendance benefits but it's too early to hear from them. I know this is sketchy but hope it's enough to get some helpful feedback. This site has really been a life saver to me. Thanks so much.
