None of us are able to care for Mom. I started 8 years ago and can no longer handle it.. Her memory scale is moderate to severe but she has OCD behaviors that are non relenting and I honestly feel like I am less that 1/16th away from falling into insanity and I am never coming back.
We brought in a helper 8 hours a day this week but we still can't manage. Older sister thinks she can but she has less patience that me and an argument ensued and Mom dug her nails into sister and caused scratches and Mom got bruises, all while I am losing my mind locked in my bedroom!
It is time for Mom to go to a Memory Care Facility because we honestly cannot give her the care she needs and in the process our family has gone to hell and I don 't think any of us will recuperate from this nightmare.
Where do we go and how do we begin? This is an enormous step for all of us to finally agree! All help and insight is greatly appreciated!
