Cold and Self Absorbed Mother


(Phoenix, Arizona)

My father was diagnosed with Parkinson's and was moved to a care home. Basically, my mother turned her back on my father and dumped any extra care giving on me. I am the oldest daughter and the only sibling living locally. All she did when my father was alive was complain about him, his behavior, and their marriage. She lives in Assisted Living now and is in a wheelchair and can no longer drive.


I do not like her and don't want to spend time with her. She treats me like her errand girl and makes it known she prefers the company of my two youngest siblings. I do not want to be her caregiver if her health worsens. Any suggestions?
