My Mom has Parkinson's dementia and started using independent caregivers. Trying to care for my mother is getting harder and harder all of the time. We have stopped using home health care agencies because of the quality of care givers that we were getting plus the expense so now my kid and I have gone the independent care giver route. Now they are bailing on us and we face possibly facing the shifts ourselves. My kid is in college and was getting great grades but now this semester she is not and that worries me. I am trying to hold it all together and using mindfulness, exercise, proper nutrition, and positive thinking.
I have an older brother who lives in another city who does not want to be bothered with the details of what we are going through. He just visits once a week for about an hour or two. The younger brother who lives in the same city, just 15 minutes away, has stopped communication with my mom and us before the holidays.
So basically my kid and I are all alone in this............
Can anyone offer us some advice, suggestion, or resource?
