I am the caregiver for my mother. I go everyday after work and make sure she is ok. I clean up after the dogs, do the yard work ( on 3/4 acre land), take her to her medical appointments, take her shopping, etc. I live with my boyfriend two houses away so I am always close, but she says I barely do anything and I don’t take her out enough (June was 10 Dr appointments and I took her other places). I also have a full time job with overtime and four grown children so my time is valuable to me. She talks horribly about my children who she chooses not to have a relationship with and criticizes and puts me down. It makes me feel like I’m crazy because I do a lot for her. My dad died two years ago and she is in a wheelchair so I feel very obligated to help her but these verbal attacks and insults are very depressing. I don’t charge her to take care of her but I’m wondering if she did have to pay someone what would it cost?
