I take care of both my grandparents-in-law my grandmother has vascular dementia and broke her LT hip my grandfather recently came home from breaking his rt hip and has balance issues. I take care of them from Sunday evening to Friday evening straight through. (We live in their basement)
I keep the house clean which isn't too hard to do. And hospice even comes in daily to help give my grandmother baths and change her bedding. But I don't understand why I'm so stressed and never have the motivation to do anything anymore. I've been taking care of them for 7 months now and I don't know how much more I can do. I never feel like I sleep enough nor have any motivation. My aunt in law (who is their POA) and is a RN doesn't understand why the weekend isn't enough time. And I can't seem to get through to anyone about this.
