Caregiver to Aged Mother

by Trizden
(Australia)

It is very frustrating when everything falls on one child to do everything and no one else wants to help.


Further strain as Mother won't go to respite to give me a break and I can only get away 1 night every 3-4 months. Often interruptions stop you from having a routine for yourself so have to make the most of the rest period of Mother to catchup of my own interests.

I de-stress by meditating, prayer and taking time out when I can to read or ring a friend. Have to be careful though otherwise the stress can lead to bad health like at the moment I have the flu and am useless to Mother so hopefully she will be able to do a few things on her own.
