Caring for my Alzheimer's Mother no help from Brother or Sister
I've been caring for my mother for 5 years in my home. She has been in hospice for a year and declining but lingering on. It's extremely difficult for many reasons.....financially, emotionally, loss of privacy, loss of half my space, time....etc.
I'm tired all the time, getting physical problems, and my sister and brother have not helped me at all. That hurts my feelings. I am lucky to have a very generous husband who is extremely supportive. I just want it to end. For my mother because I don't want to see her choking and not being able to swallow which is starting to happen.
She has no life now even though she is very comfortable and seems happy. She know she is cared for and has no fear. I will always have that, knowing that for the rest of my life but this is a very lonely, lonely road.
I just want it over and want my life back. I can't even remember what it was like before she came anymore. I am a different person now.
