Hi, I am a 50 yr old female that lives and is the care giver for my 85 yr old mother. My health is poor and I'm afraid that if I need to go into the hospital for any length of time, my mother, who hasn't been diagnosed yet of having Alzheimer's or Dementia, would be alone especially during the night. My siblings live too far away and have jobs and spouses to come help take care of their Mom. Mom's insurance won't cover for anyone from a agency to tend to her. I am on disability and I can't afford to pay an aide or nurse at $15-25 an hour. My best friend is almost in the same situation as me and she is unable to help.
Is there any advice anyone could give me that could help me with this touchy situation? Thank you all in advance.
