I can't tell you how stressed out I am caring for my elderly parents. I have zero support from my brother and two sisters and all they seem to do is second guess every decision I make. I moved Mom and Dad in two doors down a year and a half ago and it has been non stop ever since. My life is NOT my own any more. Seemingly dawn to dusk working on the basics, cooking cleaning, running errands.....I have little time of my own.
I am trying to get them set in the new place but there is always something to be done like changing light bulbs, sweeping out the back porch, mowing the lawn (my husband helps with this), and general home maintenance besides our home.
My siblings are no help what so ever, just calling to see how Mom and Dad are doing and if they have a complaint, they call me at home and give me a ration of it. Big!
It is a thankless job to be sure, however I think I am doing the right thing as this gives them a few extra years on their own instead of going to a care home. If I could just get my sisters and my brother from making negative comments, that would help a bunch.
