Daughter/Caregiver

by Lupe D
(Tracy, CA)

Mom wants to move to a "facility" due to her constant distrust of everyone and anyone. We were told her insurance would not cover "end of life care" that I understood as room and board care? Not a skilled nursing facility.


My intentions were to take care of her until the end or until I cannot assist her physically. Her dementia/Alzheimer's condition has made it unbearable at times to be around her. Her constant accusations, her paranoia- the fear everybody's out to harm her.

I don't want to see my son's marriage fall apart because my mother can't control what she's saying.

It doesn't matter if she's looking at adults or children, and nobody wants their children to hear the awful things she says sometimes. My son has good intentions to allow me to live in his home, pay hardly any rent so I can stay in his home with my mom so I can take care of her.

I'm at the end of my wits right now and feel I have failed my duties as her daughter.
