Caregiver/R.N.

I have been taking care of my 84 year old Mom for the last 5 years, and my Dad, now for 2 years.


Both of my sisters live in the same town and maybe come by and visit once a month, or call once a month, but have not ONCE, ask me if I would like a few hours off,and they would give me a few hours to rest or to take just a little time for myself.

I do not understand, but one of my sisters has no problems always asking for money. The one thing I ask for,is please let my Mom and Dad wake up in the morning.

It makes me cry but not in front of my parents to be so lucky that I still have my Mom and Dad, and they wake up every morning.

Same situation here. Bless u and your not giving up attitude loving and non selfish. This is extremely hard balancing act and sometimes there is no balance and you give your all. Kind of like u don't exist.

And other family members have all their excuses. Ir just no respect for your life. But what I realized is we do so much I believe we are keeping them spiritual and providing them with future...brighter days hopefully. Bless u are the angel. Michael Boston I have post too
