What am I suppose to do? Timing is getting pressed because of other things in my life and distance is still an issue. I love my grandma bit i cant get it all done! The car needs to be fixed, adult services fell through because her doctor took to long filling out paperwork. I need to find time to manually give then the stupid paperwork AFTER the aging corp person gets my message about emailing me another one.. ugh. I need more than 1 of me.

Thanks Linda, but what I could REALLY benefit from is a pharmacy delivery service that isn't a scam and doesn't cosy hundreds of dollars per med (not even per day order!)

Thanks for the paperwork suggestion. Just gotta wait for the PCA to get back to me

Another thing I've found that helps me is buying all sorts of things for Mom online - clothes, specific toiletries, special socks for her leg brace. Even things I'd run to the mall for. I upgraded to Amazon Prime so shipping is generally free.

Can your pharmacy do auto-refill and text you when it's ready? We had an issue with paperwork from Mom's doc for the VA - it just wasn't getting filled out and signed. Finally, I filled it out, faxed it over, called to tell them that this was time sensitive and that I would pick up the signed form on a specific day.
Put as many of her payments on autopay, like phone, insurance. You're probably already doing online banking.

Pam, I though of that too since it's a great idea. I was just afraid of messing it up since it asks for all sorts of conditions she has. I've done my best to keep up.

Thanks. I've started taking antidepressants lately so I've been handling everything much better than i used to. It's just finding time to fix her stuff on between working on my stuff is super tough. It's not even a problem with time delegation. I work nine to five monday though friday and some Saturdays too. Honestly, when do i have the time to drop off and pick up stuff? I need to do this when offices are open since mailing, emailing and faxing had all fallen through. I hate her doctor.. i hate her pharmacy even more. I just had to change it recently to make picking it up easier FOR ME. Hers....just sucked long story short
I make the time to visit her at least once a month. I dont have time beyond that unless there were an emergency. All this extra running around without some kind of direct schedule in place is tough. I wish i could see how other people do it.

At least i made the effort to set up online grocery shopping!!!! Saves a TON of time by the way.

Call me evil, but I fill out the paperwork and just have the MD sign it. He hates paperwork.
