Clueless Sibling

by Debbie
(Utah)

I have been the primary caregiver for my mother for the past 10 years before she passed away last year because she slipped in the kitchen and broke her neck. She was sick and was supposed to stay in bed and let me know if she needed something. That is why we have this arrangement after all. She did not do that one day, unfortunately­čś×


I am also the caregiver to my father. Both of them live/lived with me.... When my siblings come over, one in particular thinks that if I mention to my dad to be careful that I am being overprotective. (Stay off ladders, watch the stairs, hold the railings, stay off ice after a snow storm, for example)

How can I explain to her the realities of caring for an injured or hospice parent if they slipped unnecessarily and gotten injured
Any advice would be helpful,

Tell her she can come and take care of him if it happens.
