My mom took care of my dad when he was terminally ill from lung cancer no hospice just her at own home, at the same time taking care of bi-polar son
and having double masectomy herself..There was little help during all of this ten years ago. Now she is 80 . She has rectocele and newly diagnosis of depression and anxiety. Landed her in hosptial for month. Now trying to live at her home with bipolar son still at home.. I try to help but she has always been so independent. Problem is no help from outsiders because she saved alot of her money and is not elligible for financial based programs. How do I treat her with dignity and the respect she well deserves. ? It is so difficult because she doesn't want to go on and she doesn't want me to be responsible for brother or her..The facility she was at sent her home and said family member make sure take medicine but pretty well she should be okay at home . The social worker and doctors know about her family situation but have been not much help just said
we need a plan when she was in geriatrics behavior part of hospital. they said
as long as she has her own home she should be okay at home.????
