My grandmother remarried after my grandfather passed over 20 years ago. The man she remarried is experiencing early stages of Alzheimer's and at 84 years old, she is his only caregiver. Within the last few years she has been showing signs of dementia and has fainted and hurt herself at least two times. Neither of them are able to bathe themselves, clean the home, or remember important appointments or to take their medication. Recently, my parents, aunts and uncles and step family have started meeting once a month to schedule out daily visits for the coming month. They rotate each day and bring them food, take them to appointments as necessary, and make sure they have taken their medication. However, there are many hours each day that they are left alone. I do not believe that this is a long term solution, and it is causing stress on the family rather than addressing the circumstances head on. There are also family differences and opinions that are negatively impacting solutions that require financial support. I am 27 and live out of state, so I am unable to be around for any discussions regarding their care. I am concerned about my grandmother. She is my only living biological grandparent and the stress of being a care taker has become too much for her. I am also concerned about my parents. They are both aging and I fear the added stress of family dissension could lead to future health problems. Is there anything you could recommend that I do to help? I am currently looking for articles that have advice for blended families and choosing care for elderly parents, as well as looking for local services that could help mediate these conversations. Any suggestions are appreciated. - Thank you for your time.
